WESTERN BUREAU:

Following his stellar performance at this year’s Shaggy and Friends concert, veteran reggae artiste, Half Pint, is preparing an equally brilliant set for his first performance at Jamaica Jazz andBlues in Trelawny on January 26.

The entertainer, who is anticipating gracing the Jazz and Blues stage, describes the event as an excellent platform to showcase his songs to a diverse audience.

“It will be my first time performing at Jazz and Blues, and it is definitely something I am looking forward to,” he stated.

“In keeping with the celebration of Jamaica 50, it is very significant to highlight reggae as it has helped to propel Jamaica’s brand to the world. To be a part of the such an experience is an honour.”

The artist, who is known for hits such as Substitute LoverGreetings, and Winsome, has no intention of slowing down in his musical endeavours and promises an out-of-the box experience for Jazz and Blues fans.

“Jamaican reggae music is in line with the concept of storytelling that is synonymous with jazz and blues music, so most definitely, I will be doing some of my old favourites that fans have come to know and love Half Pint for. It will be special, and I will be coming to give music lovers a performance unlike any other,” Half Pint said.

Roots in west kingston

Born Lindon Roberts, the entertainer is a product of the west Kingston enclave of Rose Lane – a community in the proximity of Trench Town – which has produced the likes of Bob Marley, Dennis Brown, Peter Tosh, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, and Toots Hibbert.

Half Pint’s schedule after Jazz and Blues Festival could see him travelling to California where, he says, there is a growing fan base.

“We have requests coming out of California, so I may be there sometime this year. I have been there a few times and I love the vibe, plus, others are calling, so once the details are finalised, then we are on the move again,” he explained. “I recently completed my Hawaii tour, but I foresee touring for the rest of the year, so we continue to spread reggae.”
