Article excerpt

Julian marley, son of legendary reggae star Bob, is playing live at Stockton Arc tonight.

Marley, who has been around music all his life, updates his own roots-reggae tradition into a contemporary framework with R&B, jazz and Latin grooves.

Born in London in 1975, he has been blessed both by his father's great talent and legacy and by the special perspective that comes with an upbringing in a multicultural community.

Since recording his first song at the age of five at the Marley family home in Jamaica, Julian has become a skillful, self-taught musician, mastering the bass, drums, and keyboards. In 1989 he released his first album, titled Uprising - also the name of his band.

All five members of the Bishops write music and have contributed to the new album. Tickets are pounds 5 and the band should be on stage at 8.30pm.

The Caffrey brothers, the

North-east's answer to the Eagles, were previously signed to Elton John's DJM records in their

previous incarnation as Arbre.

They worked with noted producer Gus Dudgeon, the man responsible for some of the biggest hits of David Bowie, Chris Rea and Elton John. …
