The Bean Project in Nimbin via Belgrave
RETURNING to Nimbin via the forests of Belgrave, Melbourne come this vibrant brass-clad acoustic duo - The Bean Project.
Featuring acoustic guitar and French horn play they what could be described as lyrical folk with a strong narrative.
The Bean Project encompass the genres of folk and jazz, showcasing a unique and quirky style of original material that is musically appealing, touching and fascinating all at once.
Having won the 2014/15 FReeZA Push Start Battle of the Bands, and performing with Melbourne names such as The Twoks, The Woohoo Revue and 8Foot Felix, The Bean Project are steadily making waves around the country.
Their last gig at The Phoenix Rising Cafe made a big impression on the locals who were keen for some more.
After playing together in various acts, Ben Langdon and Bryce Turcato focused their attention on creating music that was raw and untreated, and formed The Bean Project in 2014.
The duo present a simple yet musically diverse style of original material, complimented by Langton's sublime vocal tone blended with Turcato's distinctive French Horn explorations.
The duo's influences stretch from The Cat Empire to Johnny Cash and their sound has been most aptly described as 'the odd marriage of Cake, City and Color and Kings Of Convenience'.
The Phoenix Rising Cafe has an outdoor stage situated in gorgeous river-side gardens creating a relaxed ambience within the confines of the Nimbin Bush Theatre complex.
The Bean Project at the Nimbin Bush Theatre, 6pm on Saturday, January 28.
