Lee “Scratch” Perry
Regarded with awe throughout the music world, Lee “Scratch” Perry holds status as one of the most enduring and original reggae producers and artists of all time. From his early days in the 1960’s as a singer and engineer for Coxsone Dodd’s Studio One in Kingston, through his production of the seminal Wailers’ classics African Herbsman and Soul Revolution, Perry’s innovative style marks him as one of reggae’s original treasures. His on the edge creative genius remains evident in his own solo albums of the 1970’s through his steady stream of mind-boggling releases of the 1980’s.
He’s one of reggae’s undisputed pioneers and we can’t wait to welcome Lee “the Upsetter” Perry back to Moovin Festival. Always one to follow the beat of his own drummers, the eccentric genius Perry will continue to break new ground in his performance, delivering the hardest rebel Rasta tunes and the most unpredictable instrumental dubs. Following his recent tour of Europe, riveting both old and new fans with a full measure of blessings we can’t wait to see him perform Moovin Festival once again. Lee is perhaps the only 80+ year old that can dance on one leg for 1 hour straight.
