1st annual Tulsa Roots Rocks the Green
Sunday, September 9, 2012 | 12:00 am
They brought reggae to the masses with Bob Marley, and they’re still going strong with a message of peace and social justice. A highlight of the Guthrie Green opening weekend activities, The Wailers are one of the last, great authentic reggae institutions. In the post-Marley period, the band’s anchor is Aston “Family Man” Barrett, Marley’s most trusted lieutenant, who played on countless classic reggae hits throughout the seventies. The authenticity he brings to The Wailers’ sound is indisputable. Yet today’s line-up combines old school know-how with lead vocals from Koolant, one of Jamaica’s most exciting new singers whose material is inspired by reggae’s golden era. This mix of the old and the new has kept the band on top, playing the best festivals and touring the globe regularly. Tulsa Roots Music is proud to kick off eight fabulous weeks of Sunday Concerts with this classic band.
