Sounds of Summer: Winston Irie

Everything is gonna be irie when reggae favorite Winston Irie joins us for his very first Sounds of Summer concert at the Parrish. A staple on the reggae scene, Winston (Irie) Sumner has performed or shared a concert bill with Lenny Kravitz, A Tribe Called Quest, Richie Havens and others. He has also opened for Jimmy Cliff, Steel Pulse, and King Yellowman, to name a few. Named one of the 8 most influential local music stars by Hamptons Magazine, Irie, originally from Guyana, came to the Hamptons in 1993 and fell in love with the "island vibe", which reminded him of home. 

“When I’m out here, it’s not about me,” Irie says. “It’s all about the people.” It’s why he’s known for adapting his shows and the band’s lineup of percussion, African drums, bass, and guitar players from one venue to another. As a result, he has never played the same show twice. (KEITH RYAN CARTWRIGHT | July 18, 2014; Hamptons Magazine).
