The Revolution Will Be Live: A Tribute to Gil Scott Heron on Thursday 1st April 2021
Please note, this event has been postponed.
New date to be announced in due course.
We celebrate the life and times of Gil Scott-Heron in the company of his former bandmates and friends. The Revolution Will Be Live is the critically acclaimed, festival-headlining show lovingly put together by Kim Jordan, Gil's musical director for over 30 years, and his protégé Malik Al Nasir.
Kim Jordan, who can be heard on many of Gil’s albums including ‘Spirits’, ‘Tales of the Amnesia Express’ and Gil’s last album ‘I’m new here', will be performing a set of his finest works with a full live band and Washington DC vocalist Ka'Ba as Gil
Malik & The OG's will open the show with a Gil-inspired spoken word set.
This is a fitting tribute to one of the most prolific and iconic musical figures of the 21st century.
Music Genres: Funk, Spoken Word
