The original Wailers join the growing movement of climate protectors on Sunday, August 15th at Paper Mill Island in Baldwinsville, NY. A music concert from 2pm – 8pm – in conjunction with Hollerback Productions and Eastern Artists – caps off the annual weekend celebration that unites diverse ethnic and international cultures to protect the environment.

The 3rd annual festival begins on Friday, August 13th from 4pm – 10pm at Gelston Castle Estate with “Movies at the Mansion” and continues there Saturday, August 14th from 1pm – 6pm with “Soccer and Domino Tournaments” played among Reggae Music and other activities. Admission is free to the programs at Gelston Castle Estate. A $3 contribution for parking is asked.  

Moving to Papermill Island on Sunday, August 15th, the music concert features The Original Wailers, who faithfully carry forward the true spirit of “One Love” that helped create Bob Marley and the Wailers as one of the most influential bands of all time. The band performs all the songs of Bob Marley and the Wailers. John Brown’s Body returns to the festival after a year away. The highly respected band released in their latest CD 2009, making the top 10 on reggae charts. Also appearing are Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad and Rubblebucket Orchestra, who bring their enthusiastic following within upstate New York music scene.

Tickets can be purchased for $25 in advance, or for $30 on the day of the show at the following locations: The Soundgarden (in Armory Square, downtown Syracuse), frontgatetickets.com, and www.thewestcottheater.com.

The event is the third annual Reggae for Climate Protection festival in which the organization raises awareness for the environment, as well as fundraising for The Center for Green Leadership. The concepts of reggae music are used to inspire audiences to adopt an eco-friendly way of life and promote climate protection.
The worldwide resonance of Reggae music has changed our social climate from forty years ago. This year, with the Original Wailers, we invite you to take part in a movement that brings Green into our hearts through the movement of music.
