Today barefoot troubadour – Beans On Toast – releases a new song & video ’Jamie & Lilly’, plus an accompanying short story.


British folk act Beans on Toast release latest single “Jamie & Lilly”.  A modern-day love song set against a Brighton backdrop, we’re offered a glimpse into the lives of two wonderfully special people. A teacher and a nurse. The music video features the actual couple that the song was written about and the short story, told by Beans himself, explains how it all came around.
