Hollywood ArtsPark Experience: Julian Marley
The Hollywood CRA and the City of Hollywood present an evening with Julian Marley on Saturday, July 31st. Julian Marley is the son of reggae legend Bob Marley and Barbados-born Lucy Pounder. Growing up as a youth in a musical atmosphere, the Grammy Award Nominated roots-reggae musician, singer-songwriter, producer and humanitarian quickly adopted a musical lifestyle at an early age and became a skillful, self-taught musician mastering the bass, drums, guitar and keyboards. During Julian’s formative years in Jamaica, he began to study under legendary reggae veterans such as Aston “Family Man” Barrett, Carlton Barrett, Earl “Wire” Lindo, Tyrone Downie and Earl “Chinna” Smith, all of whom inspired the then fledgling song-bird. Since releasing his debut album in 1996, Marley has continued to tour and record, with his own band, and in collaboration with family and reggae legends — always clearly reflecting his roots and heritage.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m. with opening sounds by Dubwise. This all-ages show is free with RSVP: www.RhythmFoundation.com/#/events?event_id=42958. Lawn seating is available.
