about

Fay Roberts (shortlisted for Sabotage Reviews "Best Performer of the Year 2012-2013") brings you an hour or so of poetry and introductions (but mostly poetry). A mixture of classics such as Blissful Chance, Song to the Sea, I Want More, Kaleidoscope, Swarm, and Dedication, along with newer pieces like Blacktop, Misted, and Silken, and some rarely-heard tracks like Mae Ddrwg Gen I, Walk With Me, and the 15-minute apolcalyptic epic Semi.

A series of performance poems, mostly recorded at live shows,generally a cappella, with some accompanied, in pubs, theatres, community centres, bookshops, cellars, and restaurants.

Enjoy this chance to hear a range of pieces by "The Welsh Whisperer".

“We need more poetry like this... funny, confident, modest and a really bloody good poet to listen to.” - Hollie McNish, Former Glastonbury Slam Champion and co-founder of “Page to Performance”

“... her poetry combines lyrical flair with a solid emotional core. In a scene full of copycats and trend-chasers, there is no one quite like her...” - Tim Clare, Founder member of “Aisle16”

“Fay performs her poetry with confidence, passion and an intimate, hypnotic vibe.” - Elaine Ewart, Fenland Poet Laureate 2012-2013

“Fay Roberts... never disappoints and often amazes... She uses words with judgement and economy - a whisper instead of a shout, and always a smile...” - Young Dawkins, Scottish Slam Champion 2011-2012, host/ compere of the BBC Slam at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival

“... an artist who can incorporate the funny, the emotive and the surreal into a single set... a valued part of the UK scene.” - Russell Thompson, London Programme Co-ordinator, Apples & Snakes

“... a dragonness of a poet who will seduce you with her musicality...” - Tina Sederholm, Co-host of “Hammer & Tongue” Oxford, Shadow Artist at the “Shake The Dust” program 2012

“Known to us as ‘The Welsh Whisperer’, Fay Roberts has the ability to bring a room to total silence, her mellifluous tones sending her audience into a dream like trance... cannot recommend her highly enough.” - Paul Eccentric, Co-founder and host of “Rhythmical Ravings & Rants” (RRRants.com) and speaking part of “The Antipoet”
