The usual 'cookies' warning. More...


We are a folk trio from Stratford-upon-Avon comprising Tony Beysens, Paul Boness and Lol Moran. We practise in Tony's shed, and Tobias is an acronym which stands for "Three Old Buggers in a Shed".

Tony is a singer/songwriter who tends towards blues and mainly plays guitar, but sometimes some of his many other instruments.

Paul mostly plays the Scottish small bagpipes with us, but does also play the noisy Great Highland pipes and the penny whistle, and his repertoire accordingly includes a lot of Scottish tunes.

Lol is also a singer/songwriter who leans towards traditional folksongs and plays guitar and bodhran (Irish drum.)

Our first album, "Sheds", was launched on 21st August 2018 at the Alehouse in Stratford-upon-Avon, at which we performed the whole album. For more details see the Sheds page

The CD is being distributed in aid of The Shakespeare Hospice, and is available in their Stratford shops and also in the Alehouse, at a recommended price of four pounds, every penny of which will go to the hospice.
