The Beggars find that space between the ancient tones of folk music and the sounds of modern Australia.
Renee was born on the family farm in Esperance in Western Australia. When her family was forced off the farm by hard times her granddad went back to the Queensland cattle drives, a trade he had learned as a boy and Renee moved with her family to Adelaide. Quinton and Stuart both paid their dues in touring bands traveling through the big cities, country towns and tiny outback communities. Often playing 300 shows a year in all kinds of venues and when they were way off the beaten track setting their show up on the red earth its self. When they were finished with the touring life they returned to Adelaide where they met Renee and formed The Beggars in 2006.
Their 2006 album “Beggars” caught the ears of European DJs and yielded the hit songs Preacher I Have Sinned and Kangaroo. The Banjo Song from their 2009 album “Desert Flower” gave them their first European Country Music number 1 #.
