All Stars says thanks
CAVE SHEPHERD ALL STARS tent will strive to continue producing good quality social and political commentary that would make Barbados one of the best calypso factories.
This was the word from the tent’s manager Eleanor Rice yesterday as she spoke to the media during a motorcade to celebrate the tent’s success in the 2013 Crop Over Pic-O-De-Crop Finals.
The tent’s Ian Webster captured the Pic-O-De-Crop title, tent member Chrystal Cummins Beckles placed second and Colin Spencer came fourth.
“We want to thank the people of Barbados for everything and all the support that they have given to the Cave Shepherd All Stars calypso tent’s calypsonians. We want to come stronger next year.
The motorcade which ended at Enterprise Beach, Christ Church, made a brief stop at Cave Shepherd Broad Street where the calypsonians greeted fans, signed autographs and posed for pictures. They also passed through Webster’s homeland Deacons Farm and Cummins-Beckles’ Mahogany Lane, St Michael community.
“I want to build some momentum for next year as well, [starting] from now,” said Webster. (AH)
