Reggae artist Jiimmy Cliff to play free Brooklyn concert

 Reggae legend Jimmy Cliff will perform a free concert in Prospect Park to kick off this year’s Celebrate Brooklyn! concert series, organizers said Tuesday.

The 63-year-old Jamaican star is known for hits like “You Can Get It If You Really Want,” “Many Rivers to Cross,” and “The Harder They Come,” which helped make reggae mainstream.

“He’s been on our wish list for a long time,” said Jack Walsh, director of performing arts for BRIC Arts Media Brooklyn, which puts on the series. “I think in particular he really resonates in Brooklyn across all tupes of audiences. Obviously in Brooklyn we have a large Jamaican community that he’ll be instantly recognizable to.

“In his later years he’s become a fastastic crossover artist, and we think that really resonates well for all of Brooklyn,” he said.

Cliff will perform on June 5 at 8 p.m. at the Prospect Park Bandshell. The rest of the Celebrate Brooklyn! line up will be rolled out in the coming weeks.
