Colin Grant and Linton Kwesi Johnson: Trench Town Rock

Colin Grant and Linton Kwesi Johnson: Trench Town Rock

Colin Grant, author, historian and BBC producer, and Linton Kwesi Johnson, poet, musician and activist, ‘in conversation’ at the London Literary Festival

London’s largest literary festival plays host to Colin Grant and Linton Kwesi Johnson, as part of the literature and spoken word series entitled, ‘Trench Town Rock’.

The two will discuss Grant’s book, ‘I&I: The Natural Mystics – Marley, Tosh and Wailer’, the first group biography of the undisputed kings of reggae, the Wailers.

Grant’s book charts the group’s rise, from their humble origins in the violent and vibrant Kingston ghetto, Trench Town, to worldwide acclaim. He outlines their journey, set in the context of Jamaica’s rich musical, cultural and social history.
