BAR HARBOR — The Wailers band will perform at The Criterion Theatre on Friday, June 22, at 8 p.m.
From 1973 to 1980, Bob Marley & The Wailers recorded, toured and performed before millions worldwide. Since 1981, bassist-founder Aston “Familyman” Barrett and original guitarist Junior Marvin have carried on the mission to “keep The Wailers together,” just as Marley requested, affirming: “By doing that, you keep me alive through the music.”
In tribute to the late co-founder and drummer Carlton “Carly” Barrett, The Wailers present Aston Barrett Jr. on drums. “It’s startling how the young powerhouse delivers with his uncle’s inspiring landmark style,” said a press release. “Lead singer Joshua David Barrett is a Rastaman by lifestyle and culture. Josh delivers Bob’s powerful message of Jah love and unity through his performance and interaction with the audience.”
Seats in the balcony and front center orchestra sections cost $49.75, premium orchestra seats cost $39.75, and general orchestra seats cost $29.75.
