How Freakin' Zeitgeist are You? - Only Welsh date
Murray Lachlan Young is widely regarded as one of the best-known poetry voices in Britain, acclaimed poet, playwright, broadcaster and writer, he is celebrated for his hybrid mix of stand-up comedy and poetry with delightful commentaries on the bizarreness of contemporary life. Live and onstage expect flamboyant punchy wit and brooding subtext with empathetic humour.
Ignoring the boundaries between poetry, rock-n-roll and comedy, current poet-in-residence at BBC6 Music, Murray Lachlan Young is many things, but above all one of the most distinctive wordsmiths of our time. Unmissable!
“A rock n’ roll poet” – Chrissy Hynde
