11F Great Jamaican Songbook (11F)

Thursday 11 July | 19.30

2019 Artist in Residence and MOBO award nominee, Cleveland Watkiss MBE, brings a second, very personal project to the Festival, as he explores his Jamaican roots, celebrating many of Jamaica’s internationally renowned musicians and the pioneering sounds of Reggae and Ska.  Joined by a superb hand-picked band in the courtyard at Swinfen Hall Hotel (with room for dancing!), The Great Jamaican Songbook features songs by Gregory Isaacs, Dennis Brown and Delroy Wilson, and takes inspiration from musicians who came out of that great institution The Alpha Boys School, under the tutelage of (the nun) Sister Mary Ignatius Davis.

Tickets £18
