Roots-reggae's veterans reach out to the younger generation with the Live Inna Yard show, which takes place tomorrow at Kingston 10 Sports Bar & Grill in Kingston. Emerging singer Autarchii will perform an acoustic set backed by famed session guitarist Earl “Chinna” Smith and his Binghistra group.

Autarchii, whose given name is Jermaine Joseph, is based in New York. Live Inna Yard is part of the promotion for Cure my Pain, his latest song.

The show will also feature roots-reggae stalwart Fred Locks and Brian Gold of Brian and Tony Gold fame.

Live Inna Yard is the first of two shows with Autarchii and the Binghistra. The second is dubbed Entrepreneurship Meets Live Music, which takes place at 44 Fleet Street in central Kingston on December 22.

That event is a joint production between Autarchii's Red A Red Music Group and Life Yard, an outreach organisation based at Fleet Street.

Proceeds from Entrepreneurship Meets Live Music will go to Life Yard's breakfast programme.

The 24-year-old Autarchii grew up around roots-reggae. His father is singer Donovan Joseph, formerly of the group Time Unlimited, which recorded for Smith's High Times label.

Smith, who is celebrating his 50th year in the music business, is one of the genre's pivotal figures. As a member of the Soul Syndicate Band, he backed countless artistes including Dennis Brown, John Holt, and Stanley Beckford, and toured as a member of The Wailers, Jimmy Cliff's Oneness Band and Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers.
