Born and raised in Bath St. Thomas, Jamaica, George Barrett developed a passion for reggae music from a very early age. Residing in Vancouver, George has had two long-running shows celebrating reggae on Coop Radio 102.7fm (over 30 years), and CiTR 101.9fm (over 25 years). At this year’s West Coast Reggae-Caribbean Music Awards held in March, George received the “Best Radio/Dj” and “Outstanding Contribution to the Reggae Music Industry” award.
On Wednesday, April 20th, the Waldorf is honoured to have George Barrett come into The Tiki Bar and play a selection of vinyl from his extensive collection. No cover! Listen to podcasts of his show on CiTR 101.9 here, or tune in to 101.9 FM on Sundays from 1-2:00 pm.
