HOOTANANNY in Inverness will take on the sights and sounds of its sister venue Hootananny’s Brixton on Sunday with some authentic old school reggae.
While Hootananny in Inverness has established itself as a home to Highland music, the award-winning London branch in Brixton, an area with a large population of West Indian descent, has developed an international reputation as London’s home of reggae.
Promoter and musician Cecil Reuben is bringing his Jah Revolution Muzik soundsystem to Hootananny Inverness on Sunday along with MC Trooper and Brother Culture, two of the most experienced MCs on the UK reggae scene.
"We’re just back from touring Kenya, Gambia, Sardinia and Spain and we’ve been together since 1980. Inverness has never seen anything like us," Reuben said.
"Scottish fans aren’t going to be different to fans anywhere else in the world. When you feel the beat, you’ll just like it. And the first thing you’ll notice is the beat. You might not understand some of the words, because sometimes they will be in Jamaican patois, but they will be hypnotised by the rhythms."
• Doors open for Hootananny Inverness’s reggae night at 8pm on Sunday 15th September, tickets £7.
