Youthsayers Horns at Lambeth Country Show

Our horn section got the chance to perform with Soothsayers and Dub Asante band at Lambeth Country Show as part of a tribute to reggae great Rico Rodriguez. The audience gave them a massive cheer and may said they found it very moving. Somewhere Rico must have been smiling.
