Mike Garry & Toria Garbutt - Quiet Sirens in a Different Kitchen on Friday 11th October 2019
Mike Garry was a librarian for 15 years before becoming a poet.
He began by reading his own poems to the hundreds of young people who attended his Library Homework Centre. They loved what they heard and encouraged him to perform them at live poetry events and Slams, which he did, instantly winning fans and prizes throughout the UK.
In 2010, Mike was hand picked to tour with John Cooper Clarke by his management.
“I liked what he said and the way he said it” Said John reflecting on their five year working relationship performing in over 500 venues throughout the UK and Ireland.
Toria Garbutt is a poet and educator.
Since bursting onto the scene in 2014,Toria has been a regular tour support for Dr John Cooper Clarke, most recently on his ‘Luckiest Guy alive tour' on which Toria performed her first European date.
