| Early 1970s: the hills of Los Angeles are alive with a new sound – an amazing group of young singers and songwriters were at the dawn of their legendary careers. Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles, Linda Ronstadt, Crosby Stills & Nash, Neil Young, Carole King, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, America, The Byrds and many others made their home in the rural idyll of Laurel Canyon, and forged a laid back west coast sound that is loved to this day.|
The Beggars sing and play the west coast sound, If you love classic California soft rock, you will love this show.featuring Stuart Day – Acoustic Guitar and Vocal, Renee Donaghey – Acoustic Guitar and Vocal, Quinton Dunne – Acoustic Bass and Vocal.
|Stuart Renee and Quinton met in 2003 at an audition in Adelaide. In 2006 the three of them 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 launched them on the Australian concert circuit. The band now has 7 albums. They have made 4 tours of Europe and become a regular feature on the Australian touring circuits|
