Ken Boothe


Playing on Thursday night – only available with a Thursday / 4-day ticket

Sweet-voiced reggae legend

If all Ken Boothe were remembered for was being part of the roll-call of reggae legends on The Clash (White Man) In Hammersmith Palais, that wouldn’t be too shabby. But of course there has been much more besides. As well as recording for all the big Kingston producers and studios back in the day (people like ‘Coxsone’ Dodd at Studio One), the sweet-voiced singer is synonymous with Everything I Own, the song he took to the top of the British charts in 1974. More than 40 years on, it remains his signature tune, but as you’ll find out, there is much, much more to Ken Boothe.
