Camden Black History Season, Book Launch: Tippa Irie – ‘Stick To My Roots’

Wednesday 1 November

Grammy-nominated, ragged icon, Tippa Irie brings his long-awaited memoir; Stick To My Roots to Kingscross Library in an unmissable conversation with radio presenter and media personality, Charlene Francoise.

 

Stick To My Roots tells the reggae musician’s incredible story – from his trailblazing beginnings in Saxon Sound International to the Grammy Award-nominated “Hey Mama” with the Black Eyed Peas.

Titled after his 2010 hit single, the book will cover 40 years of Tippa’s prestigious career: from the first sign of talent as a child in South London and family members encouraging him to enter local talent competitions, to making his first record and becoming the powerhouse and Reggae-scene legend he is now.

Presented by his publishers Jacaranda Books in partnership with Camden council, this unmissable evening will end with an author book signing, with copies of Stick To My roots available to buy on the night.
