Tony Walsh AKA Longfella: Sex & Love & Rock & Roll


Standing two metres tall, Tony Walsh is often billed as a ‘giant,’ a ‘colossus’ or a ‘towering talent’ on the UK performance poetry scene. As Longfella he has a long-legged logo, but it’s his remarkable poetry, rather than his notable height, which really stands him out from the crowd. 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.
Make no mistake, these are accessible, musical poems; influenced by the songs which soundtrack our lives; brimming with northern warmth and humour; propelled by passion and compassion as their bassline and their beat.
