    For the first time in 28 years, veteran musician David Weatherhead will be watching the Pic-O-De-Crop Finals from the stands next year. At the end of this season, Weatherhead, who has played in every final as part of the well honed uint since 1988, will be saying farewell to the Pic-O-De-Crop Festival Band. Far from being sad, the well known musician was a little nostalgic as he reminisced that he is now ready to take on a new phase of his life. Looking back on his years, and with a faraway look in his eyes as he disassembled his instrument after yet another rehearsal before tomorrow’s…

  • RON IN COMMON: Play local music

    This year’s Crop Over Festival will soon be all over. The performances of the junior calypsonians, the masqueraders for both kiddies kadooment, Foreday Morning and Kadooment, along with the visual arts, Cohobblopot and the fetes will be memories. Perhaps, the longest lasting thing will be some of the calypsos coming out of this year’s competition. Unfortunately, most will be relegated to perhaps a little airplay during the month of November/ independence anniversary celebrations when the focus is on things Bajan. But what a pity if some of the music created for Crop Over…

For her, forming a band was a now-or-never thing. “It’s something I always wanted to do and after turning 50 and moving back to Barbados, I…

  • Barbados Heritage: Historic Bridgetown

    30 Jul 2014 | 2:32 pm
    Barbados has a rich history and a tradition of maintaining and restoring our historic buildings. Nowhere is this more evident than in the capital city of Bridgetown. Established by the early settlers of the island, Bridgetown has always been a hub of activity much of it centered around the local Parliament and the Careenage where ships from Europe (especially Britain) would bring in supplies and take back with them Barbados molasses, sugar and rum!
