The Reggae Band, The Wailers, Performs Oct. 7, at the Barre Opera House.

BARRE – The Barre Opera House will present The Wailers, on Friday, Oct. 7, at 8 p.m.

The Wailers are said to embody the spirit of ’70s era-defining reggae. The band plays a special set featuring cuts from Bob Marley’s back catalog, along with a string of their greatest, classic hits. Aston Barre Jr., as son of the irrepressible “Family-man,” carries the flame for The Wailers.

In late 2020, The Wailers released their first studio album in 25 years, “One World,” which was nominated for a 2021 Grammy® Award in the Best Reggae Album category.

Tickets for The Wailers may be ordered online at or call the Barre Opera House at (802) 476-8188. The Opera House is handicapped accessible and equipped for the hearing impaired.

The Barre Opera House encourages everyone to wear a mask while attending performances. Currently, masks and proof of COVID-19 vaccination status are no longer required.
