The sense of community that connects the bands of the international reggae scene is marked by mutual respect and admiration. Younger artists look to the music of those who came before them as a tool to learn and grow from, recognizing the significance of the seed planted in Jamaica over five decades ago.
Coming to an east coast town near you this fall, the Roots to Branches Tour, featuring The Movement, Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad and Clinton Fearon, brings the roots music of multiple generations alive with the top caliber musicianship of these reggae fan favorites—and Rootfire is giving away a pair of tickets to the tour stop of your choice.
From James Searl, bassist of GPGDS:
“Reggae music took root on the island of Jamaica and quickly grew branches all over the world, forever changing lives and culture for the better. We are grateful every day for this music and the education that it has given us. Today we are proud to announce the Roots to Branches Tour! We will be hitting some of our favorite cities with heroes and friends, Clinton Fearon and The Movement. Past, Present, and future — together as one love, reaching out in the spirit of peace, justice, and solidarity. Please join us in collaboration and celebration of the reggae sound.”
All of these artists are part of the Rootfire family, and we couldn’t be more excited to be bringing this tour to fruition. The love will be palpable, the music top-shelf and the vibes sky high. Don’t miss out on this gem of a tour headed your way this fall.
