Adrian AC Clarke is bringing a new song for the MQI/Banks/LIME Pic-O-De-Crop Finals on Friday night.
AC, two-time Pic-O-De-Crop monarch who is celebrating 20 years as a competitive calypsonian, informed the public of the change via VOB 92.9 FM’s Brass Tacks programme just after 4 p.m. on Monday.
He will be replacing the second song Sociable Jam, in which he made reference to Reverend Lucille Baird, with an offering entitled Thanks Lucy. In the selection, which has been arranged by Ricky Brathwaite, Adrian is even more direct in his response to the reverend’s comments on morals in Barbados.
The National Cultural Foundation’s (NCF) rules for the Pic-O-De-Crop state: “A calypsonian may sing one completely new calypso at the Finals stage if he/she desires.”
AC told Brass Tacks that he had a long discussion with Rev. Baird subsequent to his performance at the MQI/Banks/LIME Pic-O-De-Crop Semi-finals. He claims that he has been inspired by the discussion with the reverend, who is director of Mount Zion’s Ministries.
