The golden-voiced Jamaican reggae star live with the incredible Soothsayers plus DJ Mikey D.O.N carrying the love on the dancefloor into the early hours.

“One of the legends of reggae jamming with a multi faceted band at the top of their game” The Crack

"A roots road trip. Turns all of the right Jamaican musical motors." Mondomix

“Thrilling harmonies...seriously infectious dance floor grooves...goose bump-inducing vocals.” The Guardian

Cornell Campbell is widely considered to be one of the finest voices to have emerged out of reggae's golden years in the 1970s and his lauded album collaboration with the Soothsayers has garnered global acclaim. This inspired pairing first took shape through a chance meeting between Cornell Campbell and Robin Hopcraft from UK Afro dub collective Soothsayers, in Kingston, Jamaica early in 2011. A session was arranged at Bunny Lee’s recording studio in West Kingston and, within days, the collaboration produced the sweet ‘I’ll Never Leave’, a homage to Cornell’s island home country in Parish of St Elizabeth, later released on a 45 on Soothsayers’ own Red Earth label. Signed to Strut, this great collaboration has produced 'Nothing Can Stop Us' a dynamite full album, a conscious and roots-based set with Cornell Campbell’s iconic, sweet vocals underpinned by deep, dubby rhythm section work and some fresh, intricate arrangements.

Now on the road expect a night of wonderful music by these great artists. And expect the good-vibe to continue into the night at Band on the Wall with Mikey D.O.N (Night of the Living Dread) bringing the reggae sounds to the dancefloor. Tickets on sale now!
