Beggars Banquet is a podcast that explores the intersection of food and music. We interview bands and artists to discuss their relationship with food, on and off the road.
Alex Porat on eclectic family dinners and video game music
We talk with Alex Porat about eclectic family dinners, her love of video game music, and taking the leap from posting cover songs to sharing her own original music with the world.
Bob Moses on raves in Brooklyn and nostalgic food in Vancouver
Talking with Tom & Jimmy of Bob Moses about nostalgic spots to eat back home in Vancouver, how warehouse raves in Brooklyn helped to inform the style of the band, and making a concert film on top of a radio tower in Topanga.
Cassandra Jenkins on hot dog main dish & her family band
We chat with Cassandra Jenkins about what it’s like performing with your parents, 1950s style cooking, Scandinavian food, and her incredible new album 'An Overview on Phenomenal Nature'.
Ariel Posen on sushi, songwriting, and guitar slinging
We chat with Ariel Posen about what it’s like growing up in a musical household, the changing food scene in Winnipeg, and his approach to writing songs and playing guitar. Ariel also talks about his new record 'Headway', dipping his toes into vegetarianism and good gas station sandwiches in Europe.
Andrew Barr of The Barr Brothers was raised on French cooking
We chat with Andrew Barr of The Barr Brothers to learn what it’s like growing up with a mom who worked alongside celebrity chef Julia Child, and how that influenced his tastes and cooking abilities. We also discuss making music in The Barr Brothers and Andrew’s role as a go-to-drummer in the tight-knit musical community in Montreal.
Pubs in London and music in Toronto with Robin Dann of Bernice
Robin Dann calls Toronto home, but back when school was in the picture, she crossed the pond to south-east London, and studied music at Goldsmiths, University of London. And before that, there was time spent in Paris. We take Robin on a trip down memory lane to talk about the decadence of Paris, the pub culture in London, and coming full circle to make music with her friends from Toronto.
