INNA DE YARD
Start of your friday evening in the lush frontyard of legendary Jamaican guitar player Earl ‘Chinna’ Smith. The ‘yard’ is situated in a regular street with nice houses in the Half Way Tree Area where a bunch of people gather each friday to hang out in the super small yard itself or on the street in front of it. The evening starts of with a 7 inch session on a 35 year old Juke Box. There’s no chairs, there’s one guy selling drinks, there’s one bathroom available. It’s an intimate affair. This is a place to blend in. This is also the place where some of reggae’s most legendary artists from Smith’s generation drop by to perform, alongside the new generation of so called Reggae Revival artists.
Each and every friday 7p.m. till 11.30 p.m.
In and in front of Earl Smith’s front yard in 6 St. Andrew Park. Not far from the Half Way Tree transportation center.
The video for Steamers a Buble from Jah 9 was shot Inna De Yard and the song is actually about the yard so you get a good impression of what a friday session looks like.
