    Lee 'Scratch' Perry

    Whelan's

    Dublin

    leescratch

    Legendary Jamaican frontiersman of reggae & dub Lee 'Scratch' Perry makes another return to Ireland to play Whelan's on March 25.

    Perry gets much credit for his part in the pioneering of dub music, both as an artist and for his studio techniques and production values, and has a guiding figure since the late '50s ska movement. Super Ape, his 1976 album with The Upsetters still stands up as one of, if not the definitive dub album. Incredibly, Perry is in his 80s, making it 40 years since its release, but he can still go with the best of them, as recent shows have proven. 

    Listen to Super Ape.

    Ticket are available priced at €26 from Ticketmaster. Doors open at 8pm.
