Through a series of workshops in schools and colleges, online classes, performances, talks and discussions, participants experience an introduction to the music and dance styles of the Windrush era and learn about the history and the significant contribution made by the Windrush generation to British culture and society over the past seventy plus years.
WindRushHour brings together a group of exceptional musicians and dancers, including legends of the UK jazz and Caribbean scenes, to pay tribute to the Windrush generation and their descendants. The artists include Caribbean dance specialist Ellen Miller (Zoots and Spangles, Jiving Lindy Hoppers, etc), guitarist Alan Weekes (Aswad, Jazz Jamaica, etc), Jamaican saxophonist Michael “Bammi” Rose (Paul Simon, Jools Holland, etc), composer and producer Steve Marshall (Lee “Scratch” Perry, Keith Richards, etc), double bass player Michele Montolli (Julie Dexter, Marshall Allen/Sun Ra Arkestra, etc), and drummer Kenrick Rowe (Clifford Jarvis, P J Harvey, The Specials, etc).
