The Waynesboro Public Library will host a Reggae: the sound of Jamaica featuring Chris “Peanut” Whitley and friends at 12 hours to Wednesday April 11. The free one-hour concert includes a light lunch.
Keyboardist and producer Whitley has toured and recorded with numerous bands, including Jamaican reggae band Culture and blues and reggae musician Corey Harris.
Whitley grew up in Harrisonburg and graduated from the Shenandoah University Conservatory. After joining a local reggae band, he was recruited to play with influential band Culture, based in Kingston, Jamaica.
Currently between tours, Whitley lives in Waynesboro. This will be his first performance at the library.
Reggae: the sound of Jamaica is part of the library’s Midday Music series which brings live music to the library once a month.
