This year has already been huge for our own Toby Beard. With three tours of Europe up her sleeve (35 shows in Denmark, Holland, Germany, Luxembourg and Switzerland), a few shows over in Utah (USA), a tour of Tassie (including the Forth Valley Blues Fest), shows in Broome, Rotto, Geraldton, Margies … this girl doesn’t stop.
Toby is excited to release her brand new live album “Live at Strib Winter Festival”. The album was recorded at Strib Fest in Denmark with her incredibly talented Dutch band. The album really captures her live energy and sound, taking the listener on a rollercoaster of emotions.
Toby has been a favourite at Blues at Bridgetown for over a decade – each show is unique. This year she brings down new players, new songs and a new energy!
“What sets Toby apart from other performers mining a similar vein is her infectious energy, a kind of worldly appreciation of life that makes even her most melancholy songs thrum with a kind of joyousness.” • X-press Magazine
“It’s a gifted singer-songwriter who is daring enough to remain this raw. It’s the same reason why Toby’s audience has found such a home in her music.” • The West
