All Stars, Headliners are off
Almost simultaneously, two of the bigger calypso tents – Cave Shepherd All Stars and Headliners – raised their curtains on Saturday night, being the first to pitch for this year’s Crop Over.
All Stars pitched at the Barbados Workers’ Union headquarters at Solidarity House, with a cast which included De Announcer, Miguel White and Kid Site.
Over at the Old Fort of Hilton Barbados, six former members of All Stars made their debut as Headliners. Among them was reigning Pic-O’-De-Crop monarch Ian Webster. His second-half number, Karaoke Song, was a big crowd favourite, generating the loudest encore calls of the night. (LW)
