Knutsford’s Michael George Gibson performs English poetry over 1,300 years, and also his own poems and tunes. He has translated and recorded some of the older stuff such as ‘Sir Gawain and the Green Knight’, and has performed at Arts Festivals round the country and at the International Medieval Congress.

He is also an organic gardener who was once a smallholder in Mobberley keeping goats, sheep, fowl and bees. He is standing in two major Elections this spring.

Michael is a veteran of General Elections.  In the 1970s he was a member of The Ecology Party which later became The Green Party.  But he decided to stand as the ultra-green Feudal Party in Withington in 1979 and again in 1983.  Then he took on Neil (and Christine) Hamilton in Tatton in 1987, and again in 1992 when he polled 410 votes.
