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.
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.
