Mi Yard Presents: Kenyatta "Culture" Hill, DJ Big Dog

When: Sat., July 4, 9 p.m. 2015

When Joseph Hill, singer and songwriter for the Jamaican vocal trio Culture, died while on tour in Europe in 2006, his son, Kenyatta Hill, stepped in and finished the tour with the band. He’s continued to front Culture ever since, walking — and singing — in his father’s footsteps. On a 2007 album, aptly titled Pass the Torch, Hill wrote new material, finishing his father’s songs and penning some of his own. That record, which maintained the band’s delicate blend of roots reggae and dancehall, cemented both his band’s future and his father’s legacy. This Saturday, July 4, Hill plays Nectar’s in Burlington, with local DJ Big Dog.
