About

The Lord Byron 5 is a band of distinguished musicians dedicated to performing selected poetical works of Byron in an original and compelling musical and theatrical act. The brainchild of award-winning musician, composer and songwriter Craig Dawson, the show has been described as “Gothic-steampunk-folk-rock”.

Dark, funny, sexy and energetic, the characterisations reflect aspects of, and people from, Byron's short but turbulent and scandal-ridden life as the music varies from the sweetly lyrical “Lines Addressed to a Young Lady” through the black, brutally romantic “The Giaour” and all stops between.
