The Wailers featuring Julian Marley
Date: February 19, 2021
Location: Dr. Phillips Center Frontyard Festival™
The offspring of legends Bob Marley and Aston Barrett, these two princely inheritors of reggae—power duo Julian Marley and Aston Barrett Jr.—join forces to return reggae to its acoustic roots. The sound is a culmination of a life-long friendship and musical collaboration between the two.
Aston Barrett Jr. started working with the renowned Julian at the age of 14 while still in the eighth grade. Seeing an emerging talent, Julian quickly took him under his wing, inviting him to his house and exposing him to the many seminal guitar books, and to the family’s rich collection of early-reggae 60s recordings of his father.
An idea born out of a phone call from a friend and fellow musician Jaime Hinckson, this rare collaboration of three of reggae’s most prominent artists, is a richly-layered tapestry of both the genre’s early rhythmic wisdom and the newer cadences of a younger generation taking reggae’s divine message out to the world
