“Some poets can make you laugh, a few can make you cry but only a handful can do both. Tony Walsh is one such poet “…taking audiences on a rock ‘n” rollercoaster ride from comedy to tragedy, from the deadly serious to the seriously deadly.” Splitting your sides AND breaking your heart? Be warned – this guy should come with a health warning!” Glastonbury Festival, 2011
Following a standing ovation at his 2012 performance in Belfast, Red Pill Spoken Word is delighted to host Tony Walsh, aka Longfella; “one of the UK’s most renowned performance poets.”
Based in Manchester and the son of a Cavan man, his trademark mix of intimacy and controversy, comedy and tragedy has been stunning audiences from grass-roots poetry gigs to international literature festivals since 2004.
Tony will be supported by Red Pill spoken-worders Alice McCullough, Chelley McLear, Colin Hassard and David Braziel.
