This August saw two legendary reggae artists perform at Boisdale of Canary Wharf. First we welcomed Grammy nominee Freddie McGregor, who sang a compilation of his greatest hits including ‘Big Ship’ and ‘Just Don’t Want to Be Lonely’ (a top ten hit in the UK). He was followed by second-generation roots, reggae artist and devout Rastafarian, Luciano ‘Jah Messenger’ – both performed to packed houses, continuing the Boisdale relationship with Jamaica.
