Tent mates go back to back
It may feel like another night at De Big Show for four of the six members who made it to the Pic-O-De-Crop semi-finals.
Veterans Serenader and Adonijah will be appearing back to back in positions two and three as well as Biggie Irie and Mikey who are up at seven and eight respectively. The remaining two are John King (11) and Classic (17).
Those picks were made following a meeting at the National Cultural Foundation with show producer Aja, and other personnel as well as Festival Band director Superintendent Keith Ellis yesterday morning. It has also been confirmed that some of the artistes exchanged positions, but it could not be determined who they were.
The Cave Shepherd All Stars also has six in the line-up and two of the stars, Kid Site and Cher, are also in back-to-back positions; as are Chrystal Cummins-Beckles and Adrian Clarke of Headliners.
Taking the stage at position six, Sammy G will be the first of the four newcomers to be in the spotlight with Mikey right behind, Donella at 12 and the youngest of the quartet, Cher, lower down the order at 16.
