Friday, November 2nd, 2012

Great Barrington, Mass.- Toots Hibbert is one of the great voices of Jamaica; his career spans every development in Jamaican music, from ska through rock-steady to reggae. Toots and the Maytals have helped to chart the course of Jamaican music with unrivaled delivery and dynamism, setting new standards of excellence, and becoming the most enduring of all Jamaica’s groups.

Toots and The Maytals (initially just The Maytals) have been working together since the 1960s and are even credited with having coined the term reggae on their 1968 single “Do The Reggay.”

In the Berkshire area, music lovers can see Reggae legends Toots and the Maytals-led by Frederick “Toots” Hibbert live on stage when they perform an unplugged acoustic concert at the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center in Great Barrington on Sunday, November 4 at 7:00pm.
