Roots reggae legend Burning Spear will return to Celebrate Brooklyn! for another epic performance. Last year’s vital Jah Is Real featured contributions from Bootsy Collins and Bernie Worrel and found Spear at the top of his game. PopMatters said, “Four decades and still dropping knowledge: no other artist, with the possible exception of Toots Hibbert, can lay claim to being reggae’s true elder statesman.” The evening will begin with the harmonies and church-inflected soul of Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens.(Source)
