Ernest Ranglin and Friends

Farewell tour

A genius with the guitar, Ernest Ranglin has spent a long career defining the genres of ska, reggae and jazz as we know them. Now, after nearly 60 years, it’s time to say farewell to the stage and his fans. Ernest will be joined for this goodbye concert by an all-star lineup including Tony Allen on drums, Soweto Kinch on sax, Cheikh Lo on vocals and percussion, Alex Wilson on piano and Ira Coleman on bass.
