Ziggy Marley in concert at The Ridgefield Playhouse, Connecticut on Friday, September 10

Former leader of Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers, Ziggy’s second solo album Love is My Religion, won best Reggae album and was his fourth Grammy. His popular singles include “True To Myself”, “Drive”, “People Get Ready” and “Tomorrow People”. Ziggy Marley will perform at The Ridgefield Playhouse on Friday, September 10, at 8 p.m.

He is the creator of albums that are geared to be enjoyed by families, and Family Time features his mother Rita Marley as well as his “extended” family member Paul Simon, Willie Nelson and Jack Johnson. This album won a Grammy® for Best Musical Album for Children. The songs take the listener on a journey of original tunes that introduce today’s youngest generation to music that parents appreciate as both easy to listen to and full of redeeming messages of love, responsibility, unity and freedom. In his own words, Ziggy says: “Usually my songs mean more than one thing. Family Time is my family, your family and the world’s family”.

A philanthropist, Ziggy is donating the proceeds from the sale of Family Time to Chepstowe Basic School in Port Antonio, Jamaica. He supports Little Kids Rock, a nonprofit organization that provides free musical instruments and lessons to children in public schools in the U.S.
