influential as that legendary band from Liverpool

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.

‘The First Fab Four’ will introduce you to - or remind you
of - four great spirits who lived in - and reacted creatively to - a rapidly changing world.
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
and give the four a new and contemporary presence.

Opening with ‘Jenny Kissed Me’, (a medley of their love lyrics);
introducing Lord Byron in ‘Lord B. in Motion’, exploring their
moving on to Keats classics including To Autumn, Shelley’s
beautiful Italian love lyrics, and ending with songs that see them
pass into history, this is an album to create a
distinctive and refreshing poetic space.
