The Beggars Back-story
In 2006 Stuart Renee and Quinton decided to form The Beggars and record their own songs. Songs from their first two albums caught the ears of European DJs and put The Beggars on the charts across the E.U. with The Banjo Song going to the number one spot. Their third Album Australian Songbook Vol 1 launched them on the Australian concert circuit. The band now has 5 albums. They have made 4 tours of Europe and become a regular feature on the Australian touring circuit.
