White River used to have some great shows, like the one listed above. It was a nice venue, not really too big and right next to White River. We used to go there often for shows and would usually get a villa by the beach and stay over night instead of driving back to Kingston. If we couldn’t make it to a show they were always broadcast live on IRIE FM so we could just sit back and listen and enjoy. I remember this show being pretty amazing, I got a lot of great photos of Culture from this show. Other memorable shows were, Ziggy Marley, Tony Rebel, Marcia Griffiths, Harry Chapman, Garnet Silk and others I can’t recall.
