Between live performances in Dallas, Palm Desert, CA, and Clinton, CT, Michaels journey takes him to New York, Los Angeles, and Madison, WI. Guest appearance by Tony Award winner Christine Ebersole.
Then come back Saturday night at 11 for Jimmy Cliff on Austin City Limits. When it comes to reggae, Jimmy Cliff is indisputably one of the greats. He first found fame as a teenager, with a string of hit singles in his native Jamaica. By the late 60s, reggae was spreading beyond Jamaicas borders and Cliff became one of its first international stars with Wonderful World, Beautiful People and Vietnam, which Bob Dylan called the best protest song Ive ever heard.
