Reggae singer MARCIA GRIFFITHS has announced a four-date tour around the UK this May featuring some big acts from Jamaica.
The show will feature BOB ANDY, JUDY MOWATT and TANYA STEPHENS as well as special guest RICHIE SPICE.
They will be backed by the 809 BAND and the event will be hosted by DADDY ERNIE and DJ DADDY FRIDGE.
Jamaican artist RICHIE SPICE will headline a brand new festival in London later this year - City Splash Festival.
GENTLEMAN'S DUB CLUB, THE MOUSE OUTFIT, CHANNEL ONE, JAH YOUTH, NATTY and RTKAL are also among the first acts confirmed for the festival, which is billed as “celebrating the Caribbean's sound system culture in the heart of the city”.
The first major line-up release for the 2013 Boomtown Fair can now be revealed, including TOOTS AND THE MAYTALS, RICHIE SPICE, COLLIE BUDDZ and the NEW KINGSTON BAND along with Jamaican music pioneer LEE “SCRATCH” PERRY.
Jamaican reggae artist RICHIE SPICE plans to complete an acoustic album by the end of the year.
The accoustic move follows in the footsteps of TARRUS RILEY who recently released the acoustic album Mecoustic and toured Europe in support of it with his BLAK SOIL band.
