Tony Norris, Flagstaff musician and  storyteller

Tony has a voice that sings like a real live river telling stories wherever it goes — gently like a ripple, or rowdy like a rapid — and always from his generous, forgiving heart.

— Katie Lee, singer, author, 10,000 Goddam Cattle, All My Rivers are Gone, Sandstone Seduction

Tony Norris, folklorist and western entertainer

Tony Norris weaves together story and song to perform for any occasion.

Singer & Storyteller

Storyteller, Folk Singer & Cowboy Historian of the Southwest

If Garrison Keillor were raised on cornbread and beans…

No western entertainer does it all with the warmth and wit of Tony Norris. Based in Flagstaff, Arizona, he is a regular at storytelling festivals, cowboy poetry gatherings, schools, campfires, and corporate conferences. Young and old alike are captivated by his homespun charm and rich tenor voice. With the accompaniment of his big Martin guitar and healthy doses of humor, he invites the adventurous spirit in each of us to leave the everyday world behind and journey into the old West. Performing solo or in an ensemble, his concerts are for those who want to hear the old songs, learn about the West, relax and have a good time. Flagstaff Musician & Cowboy Historian, Tony Norris

As folklorist, Tony brings to life the Appalachian, cowboy, and indigenous cultures of the Southwest on radio and in college settings, and conducts workshops in storytelling for adults. In addition, he produces CD packages for those who want to preserve their personal memoirs and/or family histories.
