Southampton - Paul McCartney will once again make history as he performs the first concert at the new Citi Field in New York City. McCartney's performance kicks-off a year that is jammed with exciting Beatles releases, including The Beatles Rock Band video game and the entire Beatles remastered C.D. catalog. 92.9 and 96.9 EHM celebrates the legacy of the Fab Four by hosting "Revolution" a fine art show featuring rare artwork created by John Lennon, McCartney and Ringo Starr, as well as famous Beatles photographs, album cover lithographs and one-of-a-kind Beatles animation on Thursday, July 9 through Sunday, July 12, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Duck Walk Vineyards, 231 Montauk Highway (Route 27) in Southampton, and Wednesday, July 15 through Sunday, July 19, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Duck Walk Vineyards, 44535 Main Road in Southold. Admission to the shows are free and all works are available to purchase.

One of the many highlights of the show is a rare live appearance of famed Beatles animator Ron Campbell. Campbell is the director of the legendary Saturday morning Beatles Cartoon series that aired on ABC from Sept. 25, 1965 through April 20, 1969, and animator on The Beatles film "Yellow Submarine." In his book, "Up Periscope," "Yellow Submarine" producer Al Brodax gives Campbell a great deal of credit for saving the movie and tying it all together at the last minute.

Campbell will have many of his original Beatles paintings on sale created specially for this show as well as give attendees a live demonstration of his painting.

In addition to his Beatles past, Campbell has been involved with some of the most beloved cartoons including, "Scooby Doo," "George of the Jungle," "The Jetsons," "The Flintstones," "The Smurfs," "Rugrats," "Winnie The Pooh" and dozens more.

Other "Revolution" highlights include new hand-signed artwork from Starr, a very rare limited edition art piece from the fifth Beatle, Stuart Sutcliffe, signed by Pauline Sutcliffe (Stuart's sister and Water Mill resident), hand-signed art from McCartney, a gold etched record of Lennon's "Imagine," a newly released posthumous Beatles drawing from artist Al Hirschfeld, photographs from Linda McCartney and much more. It's a visual history of the Fab Four.

"Revolution" is the largest exhibit of its kind in the world and it's only at Duck Walk Vineyards for a limited time. Come celebrate the music and art of the Fab Four.
