Music Legend Lee “Scratch” Perry Plays Music Hall on Sunday

September 21st, 2012

As one of the godfathers of Jamaican music, singer, songwriter, producer and mixer Lee “Scratch” Perry has played a huge role in bringing reggae and dub from the Caribbean to the rest of the world. In the early ’70s he built an influtential studio, the Black Ark, in his backyard and began producing for acts like Bob Marley and the Wailers. Over the years, Perry (above, doing “Exodus”) has put out an incredible amount of material under a variety of different names, but the flamboyantly dressed musician has always remained relevant, working with the Clash, getting a shout-out from the Beastie Boys and still getting out on the road at the age of 76. See this musical legend live and in person on Sunday night at Music Hall of Williamsburg.
