Cult performance poet JB Barrington is a Salford-born, award-winning performance poet renowned for his searing and satirical poetry, snarling delivery of strong sentiments and sharp rhymes.
His funny, endearing and nostalgic poetry has made him one of the most powerful performers on the UK scene.
Showing Poetential delivers a rollercoaster of emotions with a brilliant and imaginative display of poetic writing covering social issues, economics, class and loss.
Barrington’s unique, gritty style has won him several high-profile fans, including the bands Sleaford Mods and Reverend and The Makers who he has supported extensively on tour.
The poet has been commissioned by BBC Radio Manchester, City of York Council (York Fairness Commission), Kendal Calling and Salford Arts Theatre.
Suggs from Madness was so impressed by Barrington's book Woodchip Anaglypta And Nicotined Artex Ceilings he took a copy on stage with him at Kendal Calling 2016 during the sell-out Madness Saturday night headline show and read out one of the poems.
