Peasant is a studio album by avant-garde folk musician Richard Dawson, released on the 2nd of June 2017 by Weird World. Each song on the album is from the perspective of a different fictional narrator. Although it is set in the Kingdom of Bryneich, from the 400s to the 600s CE, it is intended to be a modern record, the stories and plight of each character largely contain universal themes that connect to the present day. For example, the song "Beggar" is the simple tale of a homeless man and his beloved dog, and "Masseuse" is an exploration of the nature of greed.
