Spoken Word

“Cat Hepburn has what it takes to dominate the spoken word realm” – Broadway Baby

I’ve been a spoken word artist for over five years, and I love it!

In addition to writing and performing my sell-out solo show #GIRLHOOD at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe, I have headlined all over Scotland and beyond. I’ve supported Dr John Cooper Clarke on his The Luckiest Man Alive tour (2019), in addition to Saul Williams, George The Poet, Toria Garbutt and Mike Garry.

Featured at/on:

Edinburgh Fringe, BBC6 Music Festival, BBC Radio Scotland, BBC The Social, Scottish Government, The Late Show (STV),  River City (BBC Scotland), Neu! Reekie!, Socially Distant With Susan Calman (BBC Scotland/ Red Sky Productions), Gilded Balloon’s Sofa Setlist, Traverse Theatre, Inn Deep, The Arches, Loud Poets, Rally & Broad, Borders Book Festival, Chelping (Leeds), Siren Cinematics, LUX, Material, Wire, Zero Waste Scotland, Bloody Big Brunch, Nordoff Robbins and Berlin Spoken Word.

I’m also the co-founder of one of Scotland’s most prominent spoken word orgs Sonnet Youth.

I write bespoke poems for special occasions too, and I’m currently open for commissions.
