Morgan Heritage To Tour With Marleys And Tarrus Riley!

Morgan Heritage will kick off the “Catch A Fire” Tour 2015 at the end of the month! MH will be touring and performing alongside Damian “JR. Gong” Marley, Stephen “Ragga” Marley and Tarrus Riley.

From the press release which officially announced the tour, “Both the Morgan and Marley reggae dynasties are thrilled to finally be on tour together. ‘The Marley’s and Morgan’s are more than just childhood friends. We are both 2nd generation musicians carrying on our father’s legacies. The Catch A Fire tour is a historic moment for both families because as family our bond goes beyond blood, it’s etched into our souls with the fire. We always spoke of the day when Marley and Morgan would tour together sharing the same stage night in and night out. Well now the time has come and we could not be more joyful to see this dream become a reality.’

Catch A Fire

This tour is a part of the Morgan Heritage’s continued support for their latest album “Strictly Roots”, released in April. The album features such notable reggae artists such as Eric Rachmany of Rebelution, Bobby Lee of Slightly StoopidChronixx and many more!
