Ernest Ranglin and Kathy Brown
Sunday August 5, 1:00pm - 6:00pm
CIUT is thrilled to broadcast performances by two of Jamaica's most celebrated artists live from the Harbourfront Centre Stage, performing as part of Island Soul, a Caribbean-inspired extravaganza featuring Calypso and Reggae legends.
A Jamaican musical treasure, Ranglin was an important component in the development of the ska movement in the 1950s. He recorded with the likes of Millie Small (on the hit song My Boy Lollipop"), Jimmy Cliff, Prince Buster, and the Skatalites at the famous Studio One.
Opening for Ernest Ranglin will be pianist, composer, bandleader, and recording artist Dr. Kathy Brown, in her debut Canadian performance. Kathy's repertoire incorporates a range of musical styles, from R&B and Reggae, to Calypso, Gospel and Jazz.
