The Banjo Paterson Australian Poetry Festival is held in Orange each year. In 2019 we had the pleasure of Marco Gliori as the featured poet of the Festival. Marco is a consummate professional, able to move effortlessly from performance to compere/MC and back again. Importantly he has a wide-ranging repertoire that he can adapt to a wide variety of audiences, so he is always able to connect and engage, whether at the Poets Brawl (an exciting variation on Poetry in the Pub) or entertaining the large and appreciative audience at the Banjo Paterson Festival Poets Dinner under the stars in Molong. We have no hesitation in recommending him.

For 20 + years Marco Gliori has been part of Tenterfield Oracles of the Bush Marco’s genuine love of bush poetry explodes into the most amazing on-stage performances.  Such is his talent he can silence a crowd of 500 with a heartfelt poem and have them falling off their chairs with laughter a few minutes later.  100% talent, professionalism and management!
