Wilkswood Roots Reggae greets Antigua Joe, the return of Dorset’s very own maestro of calypso, soca, ska and reggae.
Thanks to a beautifully inspiring mother and music-loving father, Antigua Joe has been singing songs of the Caribbean for over 20 years. He was introduced to a rich tapestry of world music at the tender age of four when he was gifted his first 16-note steelpan drum. From there, he taught himself the keyboard, guitar, flute and percussion before realising his brightly vocal talent.
Emerging from the fickle world of entertainment and six albums later, Antigua Joe shines across many stages delivering his homegrown version of classic reggae songs and feelgood tunes.
“Ya best be ready fi dance an’ sing an’ havin’ a damn good time ’cause ‘ere come Antigua Joe!”
