Les Barker, poet


#1

There is reference to Les Barker elsewhere on the forum. An English comic, but often pointed, poet now living in Wrexham, Wrecsam, he has learnt Welsh and writes some of his poems in Welsh as well. You may imagine that his festival appearances have been some what reduced in the last year, but he is still writing prolifically and putting it up on YouTube. His latest, in Welsh, came up today.

And for a recommendation and a belly laugh, not in Welsh, I’m afraid, try Guide Cats for the Blind. https://youtu.be/je4A6S2jYdA
