Marley in the Mountains presents Toots and the Maytals
Thursday, July 12
Yes, it’s Toots and the Maytals in Sun Valley! The legendary reggae band
will play Thursday, July 12, in Ketchum, Idaho’s Atkinson Park for the first ever
Marley in the Mountains summer concert.
Toots and the Maytals won the 2005 Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album
“True Love,” which included award‐winning and iconic musicians Bonnie Raitt,
Willie Nelson, Eric Clapton and Keith Richards. In addition, artists such as “No
Doubt,” Ben Harper, and “The Roots” have also recorded with Toots and the Maytals.
The reggae music of Toots and the Maytals remain a relevant influence on
today’s global music scene where artists from Amy Winehouse to “Sublime” have rerecorded
classic tracks. In addition, Toots and the Maytals have toured with “The
Rolling Stones,” Dave Matthews and Sheryl Crow. To his credit and talent, Toots has
achieved a record breaking thirty‐one number one reggae hits in Jamaica.
