Clinton Fearon returns to Vashon for the next free Concerts in the Park show from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday at Ober Park.

Fearon is considered by the reggae music industry to be among Jamaica’s most talented musicians. Known for his infectious bass lines, guitar licks, percussive accents and powerful vocals, Fearon said he writes songs from his heart.

“My music is good for the soul … with a message of hope and betterment for tomorrow,” he said. “It’s good for dancing and listening; I think it’s good for all.”

The audience is encouraged to bring a picnic blanket or folding chairs.
