+ support by DJ Mr A
Erin Bardwell Collective is an energetic, accomplished five-piece Trojan Reggae/ Rocksteady/ Ska Band band established in 2003. If Ska is your thing you won’t want to miss this seriously top act. When the band strikes up no one within earshot will be able to control themselves!
Band leader Erin was previously in The Skanxters. For years the band mainly focused on their own material as they toured the live circuit. Expect to hear a brilliant set with material from their studio album project ‘The Great Western Reggae Soundclash’ 2017, plus some ska classics including songs by Desmond Dekker, Jimmy Cliff, Toots & The Maytals, The Pioneers and Dave & Ansell Collins.
If you enjoy live music you will love Erin Bardwell Collective, they are truly infectious and ambassadors for Ska with attitude!
Mr A will be turning his attention to all things Jamaican with an eclectic mix of rocksteady, reggae and ska from the 60’s and 70’s. Expect the unexpected and put on your dancing shoes, as usual a strictly vinyl set of classics from Studio One, Toots, Wailers, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Jackie Mittoo, Soul Vendors and the like. Funky Kingston comes to Cardigan!
