Reggae and Ska founding fathers Toots and the Maytals bring the summer spirit with a performance of classics from across their back catalogue.

Toots Hibbert is a consummate performer; an old-school entertainer. Drawing on his church choir upbringing, his voice is a soulful instrument, joyfully carried by the Funk-infused Reggae of the band. Their live show is full of infectious exuberance, and the audience becomes so much more than spectator – as Toots unleashes his call-and-response routines, you almost feel as if you’re up there on stage with him.

Releasing their first album in the early 60s, Toots and the Maytals quickly established themselves as leading purveyors of the Reggae sound, and were pivotal in popularising the genre beyond Jamaica. Their take on the style, drawing on Funk, Rock, Soul and even Country was unique, revolutionising not only Reggae, but influencing countless others – indeed, they have been covered by artists as diverse as The Clash, The Specials and Amy Winehouse.
