Plenty of talent was on show recently when the Harrison College Parent Teacher’s Association put on its annual concert Mosaic over two nights.
Night 2 of the concert, themed Linking Generations, presented a good blend of the old and young musicians, making for an enjoyable night.
Featured artiste Damien Marvay entertained with some of his hits, including Survive The Weekend, Stars Align, Adrenaline Rush and Know The Face. He engaged the audience and had them singing along.
Marvay dedicated his song Antidote to his late friend Damien Taylor, who died in a vehicular accident last December.
The John Roett Project added to the enjoyment. Leader Roett took the audience on a musical journey, featuring songs from throughout his career, all of which he said began with a phone call.
The set began with a song from the sweet singing Biggie Irie, who did From A Lover. He was followed by Natalee Burke with Fire In Meh Soca.
Alix Cage and Betty Payne followed with a beautiful rendition of We’re Not Friends Anymore.
Payne then took the audience back in time with one of Roett’s more well-known jingles – Barbados Will Always Be Home.
Payne also did a lovely rendition of Beautiful Barbados, which was originally done by Harrison College alumnus Emile Straker of Merrymen fame.
Rupert Rupee Clarke, the featured artiste on the first night, made an appearance during Roett’s set. He did a touching rendition of his song Always Be There, which he dedicated to his mother. (DB)
