Sierra Nevada World Music Festival 1998

Tippa Irie

Anthony Henry--A.K.A. Tippa Irie--is an original and active member of England's Saxon Sound International--the star-studded traveling sound system that also served as a launching pad for Maxi Priest, Papa Levi and Smiley Culture. Tippa Irie has never swayed from his roots, and continues to perform as a top-ranking DJ on Saxon Sound today despite constant touring commitments worldwide. Tippa Irie has performed at Reggae Sunsplash in Jamaica, Mother Africa, Japan, Australia, Bermuda, North American, and Europe.

Because of #1 hit songs like "Hello Darling," "Raggamuffin Girl" (featuring Peter Hunnigale), "Stress" (featuring Lloyd Brown), "Superwoman" (featuring Winsome), "Baby, I've Been Missing You" (featuring Janet Lee Davis), and "Shouting for Gunners"--a song recorded for the Arsenal Football Team that reached Top-30 status on the British pop charts, Tippa Irie has become a household name internationally.
