Celebrating the Music of Trojan Records
Please be aware that this event has been cancelled.Tomorrow’s Warriors’ popular heritage reggae tour The Trojan Story pays tribute to the music and artists who have made a massive contribution to the extraordinary phenomenon that is Trojan Records, celebrating cultural diversity in the UK and indeed, the world.
Established in 1968, the legendary reggae/rock steady label Trojan Records was the first label to distribute the music of Jamaica widely and became for many in the UK the first point of contact with Jamaican music and culture, and a meeting place for young people who celebrated in sound what united rather than divided them.
Expect a spectacular live concert celebrating the artists and the music of the legendary label featuring many of the best-loved anthems, including Desmond Dekker’s hit 'Israelites', Tony Tribe’s classic 'Red Red Wine' and Harry J All Stars’ 'The Liquidator'.
Performing alongside the 22-piece Jazz Jamaica All Stars are special guests Brinsley Forde, Noel McKoy, Dem Three and young rising stars from Liverpool Philharmonic's Youth Company.
The Reggae Ticket will take to the road alongside The Trojan Story. The Reggae Ticket is an innovative, grass roots music and culture outreach programme produced by Tomorrow’s Warriors - a leading talent development agency, creative producer, music educator and consultancy specialising in jazz, co-founded by Gary Crosby OBE.
