Roots Music At Chinnerys From Reggae Pioneers

South Essex’s reggae fraternity is gearing up for the return of Misty in Roots, coming to Chinnerys tomorrow night. (Saturday 30).

The legendary band, who have a career spanning four decades, performed to a sell-out crowd in Southend last year, and are hoping for a repeat performance.

Misty in Roots was one of the most powerful live reggae acts to emerge from 1970s London, and they were a major force in the Rock Against Racism movement.

Their first album was 1979’s Live at the Counter Eurovision, a record full of Rastafarian songs, championed by BBC Radio 1 DJ John Peel, helping to bring roots reggae to a white audience

Doors open at 8pm at the seafront venue on Marine Parade.

Tickets are £16 in advance from or £18 on the door, direct from Chinnerys or Fives Records in Broadway, Leigh.

Support comes from Bushfire and DJ Richard Mander.
