Derrick Morgan live in London

Legendary Jamaican ska/reggae singer Derrick Morgan will be performing live in concert in both North and South London over the coming few weeks.

Expect to hear all his classics from the early r&b and ska days through to the rocksteady and reggae stompers that made him so popular with the original skinhead movement.

I saw him live last year at his sell-out concert at The Hootananny Brixton and believe me he was phenomenal. If you haven't seen him before then don't miss this chance! Derrick Morgan is one of the original "Kings of Ska" along with Prince Buster, Owen Gray and Laurel Aitken (RIP).

First up is his gig in Holloway, promoted by Club Ska:
