House Of Shem is an Aotearoa (New Zealand) based harmony trio comprised of Carl Perkins and his two sons Te Omeka Perkins and Isaiah Perkins who are each multi instrumentalist and producers.
It is with much sadness that we bid farewell to Papa Carl Perkins who has died after battling bowel cancer.
The House of Shem guitarist and singer was diagnosed with terminal bowel cancer in February, 2017 (three days before his 58th birthday) and died on Wednesday May 9, 2018, two weeks after his most recent surgery.
Papa Carl was a true pioneer and champion of reggae music here in Aotearoa. Thank you Sir. God rest your loving soul.
This LIVE Recording Wednesday episode features House of Shem live at Reggae on the River 2016 at French's Camp in Humboldt County, California.
