Linton Kwesi Johnson

Linton Kwesi Johnson

Linton Kwesi Johnson’s impressive body of work includes stints as "dub poet", political orator, recording artist and author/journalist. His 1978 reggae album ‘Dread Beat an' Blood’ is a statement akin to Gil Scott Heron's ‘The Revolution Will Not Be Televised’. A vocal personality who fights oppression against black youth, the Jamaica-born Johnson still has plenty to say. At Le Guess Who?, he’s set to deliver a spoken word performance.
