Richmond Folk Festival

Throughout this weekend (Oct 9-11th), the City of Richmond is hosting its yearly free festival at Brown's Island, with virtually something for everyone... particularly lovers of Roots Reggae.

Clinton Fearon and the Boogie Brown Band will be performing thrice over Saturday and Sunday: Clinton Fearon being one of the founding members of the foundation reggae band, Albert Griffiths and the Gladiators. With many quality solo recordings to his credit, there is no lack of upful sound possible from he Boogie Brown Band.

In addition, there are also scheduled performances by Corey Harris & Phil Wiggins/Swamp Dogg/Jorge Negron's Master Bomba Ensemble/Trouble Funk/Jerry Douglas Band/Paul Williams & Victory Trio/Masters of Slide Guitar... and too many more to mention.

Check out the festival schedule for times and stages (there are many).

We'll be playing lots of Clinton Fearon, today on "Reggae Vibrations".
