Michael George Gibson presents his own work – both tunes and poems – about, as he says, 'God' (whatever that may be), 'God's Creatures', and 'He and She and Such'. He is a 'songster' and he cannot stop whistling.

In his own poetic practice he is a traditionalist who rhymes and measures.

He is a countryman by breeding, a 'landsman', and a sometime small farmer.

Much of the stuff he performs was written during those fifteen years of living a largely self-sufficient simple life, a time when he lived even without electricity. For five years his home was a wooden 'Showman's' caravan built circa 1917. Michael's 'Chewing on a Straw' show reflects this love of the land and the 'song'.

Review for 'Chewing On A Straw'

"At the start of the concert Mr Gibson told the audience that poetry may be bad for one's mental health. If so, the music must have restored the equilibrium since I found myself enjoying the mixture from start to finish. Altogether the evening was a most pleasant and civilised experience. The next in the series should not be missed."

Martin Maltby, Knutsford Guardian, 17th July 2002

Michael's poetry and music is different; it is beguiling, and it is true.

He and his poetry bag are for hire, bookings are currently being taken for the coming year.
