Press Release: Ziggy Marley at the Keswick


Ziggy Marley

Thurs., Oct. 27 @ 8 PM

Special Guest: Leon Mobley

Ziggy Marley, five-time Grammy Award winner, humanitarian, singer, songwriter, filmmaker, comic book creator, producer and Reggae icon brings his “Forward to Love” tour to the Keswick on Thursday, October 27 at 8 PM.

Heavily influenced by his famous father, Ziggy’s early immersion in music began when he would sit in on recording sessions with The Wailers. Ziggy was still a child when his father died and the Marley sibling band, The Melody Makers, released their debut album. The burden of being a second generation star weighed heavily on the young Marley who looked and sounded eerily like his father. However with solid foundations of faith, fellowship and family, Ziggy has risen to the challenge of finding his own voice within the framework of tradition. Now, as the head of Tuff Gong Worldwide, Ziggy continues the dream of his father to own and manage their own music and preserve the integrity of the art they create.

Wild & Free, Marley’s fourth solo album released earlier this year, returns to the socially conscious reggae that launched his career. Mixing familiar textures and rhythms of reggae while further defining his unique artistic vision is what sets him in a class of his own. Wild & Free affirms Marley as a master storyteller with an innate sense of soul.

Ziggy Marley’s charity, U.R.G.E (Unlimited Resources Giving Enlightenment) acts to help children. Where resources are lacking, U.R.G. E seeks to make enduring contributions to improve the communities in which children learn, live and grow, in hopes of nourishing their future. Fueled by a true concern for the lives of children , aside from handing a child a toy, or taking a child to a park, is a long-term commitment to the care they need. There are much bigger factors to consider: safety, hunger, economics and education that determine the quality of life.
