The Northern goes green in Fernie

Performances in Fernie this March in the year 2012.

2011 was another breakthrough year for the Hawaiian reggae band The Green.  Their sophomore album Ways & Means impressively stayed at number one on the Billboard Reggae chart for four straight weeks in a row, while receiving high profile press exposure in Billboard, NPR, National Geographic, Huffington Post, and more.

They were also awarded “Artist of the Year” by The DubSide and their album was nominated for “Album of the Year” at The Pier.  The band relentlessly toured throughout the year winning new fans and regional press accolades night after night.  After a brief stint home with welcoming sold-out shows, The Green is embarking on another extensive North American tour.

The Green’s upcoming 39-city mainland tour sees the band share the stage with fellow leading reggae artists Rebelution and SOJA.  The majority of the tour dates are alongside Rebelution for their “Peace of Mind Tour.”  Rebelution are currently riding high with a #13 debut on the Billboard Top 200 and The Green are proud to support their highly anticipated tour.  All three of these acts continue to push the “homegrown reggae” scene forward and confirm NPR’s recent story highlighting on the growing popularity of “Non-Jamaican Reggae.”

The Green will be playing at The Northern in Fernie on Friday, March 2. Tickets are $10.
