Cardiff Bay will be grooving to the reggae beats of the Bristol Reggae Orchestra this Saturday (25 May).
The 30-strong group is playing a set of Bob Marley and Lord Tanamo covers and original songs at the Wales Millennium Centre at 1.30pm.
It is part of the Gwanwyn festival – a month of art events for over 50s organised by the charity Age Cymru.
Says Phil Thomas, Gwanwyn’s coordinator:
“Bristol Reggae Orchestra is one of the UK’s most unique and uplifting community projects and it is made up of people of all ages.
“We’re very proud to have them headlining this free concert we’re holding on Saturday 25 May on the Glanfa stage of the Wales Millennium Centre.
“If your experience of reggae is all from record, come along on Saturday - it promises to be a toe-tapping show of crowd pleasers, world music and an infectious reggae beat.
“Our show will also feature the world premiere of piece of music commissioned by Gwanwyn featuring Dylan Fowler on guitar and Adam Doughty on an African harp called the Kora.”
The Gwanwyn concert takes place at 1.30pm on the Glanfa Stage at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay on Saturday 25 May.
