THE BAND OF POETS

WHO ROCKED THEIR ERA –

BROUGHT ALIVE IN SONG

firstfabfour resize2

They could be called ‘The First Fab Four’, three great poets –

Keats, Shelley and Byron - plus their friend and supporter

Leigh Hunt. Now their work – inspiring, soothing,

full of beauty and vision - is available in

a unique new format.

IT'S THE ROMANTICS IN A NUTSHELL!

 

Songwriter John Webster has brought them from the

printed page into the flow of the music-scene. Melodic

indie-folk songs, underpinned by Dave Eastoe’s thoughtful,

sympathetic musicianship, draw on a wide range of their lyrics

– to give the four a new presence in contemporary life.

 

Opening with ‘Jenny Kissed Me’, (a medley of their love lyrics);

introducing Lord Byron in ‘Lord B. in Motion’, exploring their

political side in Marathon, Rise like Lions and Wild Spirit;

moving on to Keats classics including To Autumn, Shelley’s

beautiful Italian love lyrics, and finally songs that see them

pass into history and explore their legacy,

(including The World's Great Age),

The First Fab Four’ will take you on a journey into the world

of four great spirits who lived in a rapidly changing world

and looked for meaning outside the box of contemporary certainties.
