A free concert honours the great Jamaican musician at Savanna-la-mar’s Independence Park for the annual Peter Tosh Birthday Celebration. He played guitar, melodica, piano and organ on many of the Wailers’ early tracks and pursued a solo career from 1973.

Peter Tosh was born Winston Hubert McIntosh on 19 October 1944 in Grange Hill, Westmoreland, Jamaica. Legalize It was his debut in 1976, remaking many of his earlier Jamaican recordings and giving momentum to the pro-marijuana movement.

Much of Tosh’s career was interspersed with skirmishes with the authorities. In 1987 he was assassinated by three gunmen at his home. For years, his memory has been kept alive with a variety of birthday celebrations both in Jamaica and Miami.
