Jamaican reggae legend, Jimmy Cliff will be performing on the Main Stage on Saturday 14th July.
Best known for his original songs, “Sitting in Limbo”, “You Can Get It If You Really Want”, and “Many Rivers to Cross”- as well as his definitive cover versions of Cat Steven’s “Wild World” and Johnny Nash’s “I can see clearly now” (from the hit film Cool Runnings) Jimmy is currently the only living musician to hold the Order Of Merit, the highest honour that can be granted by the Jamaican government for achievement in the arts and sciences.
Inducted in to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010, Jimmy Cliff’s extensive career spans half a century! During this time he has recorded an unbelievable 29 albums, with countless performances all over the globe and collaborations with artists ranging from the Rolling Stones and Elvis Costello to Annie Lennox. This will be his second appearance at GuilFest, and after his incredibly well received show in 2007 this is guaranteed to be an amazing performance!
