Jimmy Cliff at the LC
Other than Bob Marley, no one changed Jamaican music more profoundly than Jimmy Cliff. He grew up with the infamous sound systems of Saint James Parish, cut his first hits in Kingston and became the island's first international superstar.
After years in relative obscurity, Cliff exploded anew at Bonnaroo, refreshed and invigorated at age 62. He'll bring to town that energy - and four decades of solid, sunny material. You'll likely hear favorite tracks like "Many Rivers to Cross" and "You Can Get It If You Really Want" alongside songs from a new album to be released this year.
Reggae-tinged folk musician Trevor Hall opens.
