The Twinkle Brothers, otherwise known as Norman and Ralston Grant, are one of Jamaica’s best known and loved original reggae bands.
Since the start of their career in 1962 they have worked with many well known producers including Lee Scratch Perry, Bunny Lee and Duke Reid. In the 1970s they started to produce their own recordings which led to them signing with Richard Branson’s Virgin label.
After leaving the label in the 1980s, Norman moved to the UK and set up his own Twinkle label. The Brothers have released over 70 albums, staying true to their sound of roots reggae and to their Rastafarian beliefs which are translated into an energetic live show.
Opening the show will be Passing Clouds’ founder Planetman. His uplifting world-reggae fusion sound takes the heart of roots reggae, pumped with the jump-up energy of ska, and woven through with an afro-funk groove.
