T&T Freetown Collective opening for UB UB40 Sunday

UB40 are an English reggae and pop band, formed in December 1978 in Birmingham, England.

UB40 - Red Red Wine

UB40 - Kingston Town

Freetown is another band I loved even before I heard their mature, impeccable songs. The duo at their core, Lou Lyons and Muhammad Muwakil, are two of the most riveting individuals I’ve ever met – and, though taller than me (it’s not difficult to be), they both qualify as representing short men. Lou is a former lawyer (another bond) and Mud an engineer. They both left secure, well-enough-paying jobs to do what young people so inadequately describe as “follow their passion.” (It’s more like admitting your undeniable truth – and another bond.) They are both singers capable of writing TT songs so well they become global, Mud being particularly blessed with a beautiful voice.
And yet, this weekend, a short man from Trinidad and another from Tobago and four others, who, by luck or by choice, add up to three men and three women, holding the power of the Trinity in their collective grasp, will bless UB40’s audience with a show of love, grace and great songs.
