Friday, June 17 – The Original Wailers (Reggae)
In 1974 when Bob Marley went solo, on the brink of international stardom, he surprised the music community by choosing an American born lead guitarist, Al Anderson. It was Anderson’s stunning lead work on such classics as “No Woman, No Cry” and “Three O’clock Road Block”, that first alerted rock fans to the Wailer’s music. Anderson’s musical achievements with Bob Marley & The Wailers include the platinum award winning albums, ‘Live at the Lyceum’, ‘Babylon by Bus’ and ten-time platinum album ‘Legend’. The Original Wailers received their own Grammy nomination in 2013 for their album ‘Miracle’ making it Anderson’s second Grammy Nomination. Al Anderson is the sole member of the Bob Marley & The Wailers mid – 1970’s lineup in the Original Wailers.
