Songwriter and musician Dean Johnson is currently working on a stageshow called Bullets & Daffodils, which is based on the life and work of Wilfred Owen, and he has uploaded some music onto his website.
As well as original songs, many of Owen's most famous poems have been set to music by Dean.
There will be a premiere of the songs in Owen's birthplace of Oswestry, Shropshire, on 12 August 2010. Dean will perform the musical’s score solo and narrate key events leading up to Wilfred’s tragic death, and some of Oswestry's promising new poets will precede Dean’s performance.

Dean will also be performing at Birkenhead Library in November. Details to follow.
