Aug. 7: Yellowman at Mystic Theatre

Posted By on Wed, Aug 6, 2014 at 3:15 PM

The odds were against Winston Foster. Born in Kingston, Jamaica, Foster was raised in an orphanage and shunned due to his albinism. But under the moniker Yellowman, he went on to become a widely celebrated reggae and dancehall. Embraced by the growing hip-hop scene of the ’80s and ’90s, Yellowman again fought the odds when a battle with skin cancer left his face disfigured. Following the ordeal, Yellowman re-invented himself with more socially conscious material and rose to international fame. This week, Yellowman brings his dancehall style to the North Bay when he performs on Thursday, Aug. 7, at the Mystic Theatre, 23 Petaluma Blvd. N., Petaluma. 9pm. $26—$30. 707.765.2121.
