Jimmy Cliff

Reggae’s Greatest Artist and Third World Music Superstar Jimmy Cliff will be making his first Bluesfest appearance this Easter.

His hits include: ‘Wonderful World, Beautiful People’, ‘Vietnam’, ‘You Can Get It If You Really Want ’, ‘Many Rivers to Cross’ and many more. His version of Jonny Nash’s song “I Can See Clearly Now” is an all-time Classic.

With a legacy stretching back nearly 50 years, Jimmy is a multiple Grammy Award Winner, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee, Lead Actor in the Reggae Film 'The Harder They Come' and has collaborated with the likes of The Rolling Stones, Elvis Costello and Annie Lennox. Jimmy’s songs have been covered by Willie Nelson, Bruce Springsteen and many more.

Jimmy will be showcasing his new studio album Rebirth (2012) his latest 2013 Grammy Winning album (Best Reggae Album). Although the two may seem an unlikely pair, Armstrong has cited Jimmy as his most admired Artist and Jimmy says of the collaboration "He reminded me of a lot of things that I had forgotten….He brought me back to my roots." The two have received praise for their collaboration with rave reviews including;

“It's the sound of history circling in wondrous ways” Rolling Stone

“…it’s the Cliff/Armstrong composition “Reggae Music” that’s the crowning jewel of a flawless album” Altpress

We get the feeling there is going to be a lot of smiling and skanking going on at Jimmy Cliff’s show this Bluesfest. When he performed at Coachella in April this year he found himself a whole new generation of fans and he had the crowd still singing ‘One More’ (The first single off Rebirth) once he left the stage.

Make sure you are a part of Jimmy Cliff’s rebirth this Easter.
