Well the weather forecast is looking great and festival goers will be basking in the summer sun any listening to the Rhythmtree’s hottest line-up to date. Friday 19th brings the welcome return of Son of Dave joined by Eugene ‘Hideaway’ Bridges flying in from Chicago, Little Axe, Myles Sanko and the newly formed Senegalese band Desert Rock.
Saturday 20th will be headlined by high flying Jamaican resident Cornel Campbell travelling in to revive his long term collaboration with top London reggae outfit Soothsayers. The reggae rhythms will continue to soar over the festival site in the afternoon with By the Rivers and the legendary Prince Fatty and MC Horseman.
Of course the highlight of the week-end for many will be the appearance of the first rock superstar drummer Ginger Baker with his Jazz Confusion and then guesting with the sizzling Dele Sosimi Afrobeat Orchestra. The heat will build up throughout the evening with the simmering Dutch band Jungle by Night, London Afrobeat Collective, Malian high energy drum and dance from Sankoule Kan all being fired up by the Island’s very own Fellowship of Groove. www.rhythmtree.info
