Grammy Award-winning musician/singer/actor Jimmy Cliff will perform with a stripped down band, play his classic hits and tell the stories behind them at The Ridgefield Playhouse on Tuesday, September 24, at 8 p.m. The musician, singer and actor whose career is studded with distinctions and hits including “Wonderful World, Beautiful People”, “Come Into My Life”, “You Can Get It If You Really Want It”, “Wild World” and the iconic “I Can See Clearly Now”, is on his 2013 Many Rivers Crossed Tour to support his latest Grammy-award winning album Rebirth. For Grammy-winning and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Jimmy Cliff, Rebirth is his first studio album in seven years, and Rolling Stone called it Cliff’s “best music in decades… [his] tenor still soars.” Cliff has dozens of distinctions to his credit. Special guest is singer/songwriter Ethan Tucker whose soulful mix of electric and acoustic shines through on his most recent album Lost Between. The Little Pub (Ethan Allen Highway, Ridgefield) is offering a free glass of wine or draft beer with dinner the night of the show when tickets/stubs are presented. This event is part of the Xfinity Rock Series.

With the groundbreaking 1972 film The Harder They Come celebrating its 40th anniversary, Cliff, who starred in the movie and contributed “You Can Get It If You Really Want” plus “Many Rivers to Cross” and “Sitting in Limbo” to the soundtrack, is still going strong in a career that has spanned nearly 50 years and includes his native Jamaica’s highest honor, the Order of Merit. He is, the only living musician to hold this distinction, the highest honor that can be granted by the Jamaican government for achievement in the arts and sciences.

For tickets ($70), call the box office (203) 438-5795, or order online at ridgefieldplayhouse.org. The Ridgefield Playhouse is a not-for-profit performing arts center located at 80 East Ridge, parallel to Main Street, Ridgefield, CT; ridgefieldplayhouse.org.
