Boardhouse Records artiste and CEO Assassin will headline the Sir Arthur's Day concert set for tomorrow at the National indoor Sports Centre in Kingston. The concert will be streamed live across the Caribbean as the world celebrates the legacy of the man who delivered Guinness to the world. Assassin has had a breakout year with number one hits such as Run the Place and Talk How Mi Feel. He has followed up that with stinging social commentary like JPS on the recent Big Dog riddim.


This Thursday, Assassin will be part of the line-up that includes reggae act I-Octane and soca band KES out of Trinidad. Together they will provide entertainment for the millions who will be watching across the region. Millions more across the world will also be celebrating Sir Arthur's Day.
In 1752, Arthur's godfather Arthur Price, the Church of Ireland's Archbishop of Cashel, left him £100 in his will. Guinness invested the money and in 1755 founded a brewery at Leixlip, close to Dublin in Ireland. In 1759, Arthur set up his own business making history when he invested his entire inheritance in a 9,000 year lease on the four-acre brewery at St James's Gate in Ireland.
So, from Ireland and Europe across to the USA, Caribbean and ending in Asia, 24 hours of global celebrations and live music events will mark another year to toast the Guinness legacy.
