Eric Donaldson Will Perform In Kenya On July 2nd

When Jamaicans think or speak about songs that celebrate their small Caribbean island, they always – without failing – make reference to Eric Donaldson and his music. Donaldson is the Saint Catherine singer who has cemented his name in history books by winning the Jamaican Festival Song Competition six times: 1971, 1977, 1978, 1984, 1993 and 1997.

His first winning song, Cherry Oh Baby, subsequently became an international hit that was covered by both The Rolling Stones (on their 1976 album, Black and Blue) and UB40 (on their 1983 album, Labour of Love).

On International Reggae Day weekend – specifically, Saturday, July 2nd, 2022 – Donaldson will take his love for Jamaica to Kenya, where he will perform at the Carnivore Grounds in Nairobi. The event, which is being presented by Island Vibes Kenya and Artvantage, will also feature several local acts. Get tickets and additional information here.
