There are many songs in the plays of William Shakespeare – the lyrics have survived, but the melodies are lost to time.

Jason Feddy has written fresh, modern tunes for most of The Bard’s greatest hits. Performed by Feddy’s energetic, acoustic guitar driven trio, along with world class actors, Shakespeare’s words come to life for today’s audiences.
