Jimmy Cliff

Jimmy Cliff From Jamaica

With Liam Teague and the Renegades Steel Orchestra (Trinidad & Tobago)

World superstar of reggae

His music has influenced Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon and the Clash. His critically acclaimed role as a gun-toting, drug-selling 'rude boy' in the 1970s cult classic The Harder They Come introduced an entire generation to reggae. He is, quite simply, the world’s greatest living reggae legend. Known for his easy, pop-friendly reggae style as well as harder-edged tunes with social and political lyrics, Jimmy Cliff has put his signature sound on some massive hits including his cover of Johnny Nash’s I Can See Clearly Now and his own compositions You Can Get It If You Really Want and Many Rivers to Cross. A rare opportunity to see a true reggae icon.

With a special performance by the combined steelpan masters of Trinidad & Tobago, the Renegades Steel Orchestra and Liam Teague.
