TWO NEW EVENTS are on the cards for next year’s Crop Over Festival – a vintage calypso show and a City arts festival.
News of the show was revealed by National Cultural Foundation (NCF) chief executive officer Cranston Browne on Thursday at the Prime Minister’s Crop Over Reception. At that same event, Minister of Culture Stephen Lashley told Barbadians from the diaspora attending the Barbados Network Consultation at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre about the arts festival.
According to Browne, the decision to have a vintage calypso show was in response to the request for that kind of event from patrons who attended this year’s Calypso Monarchs In Concert featuring veteran calypsonians.
Browne said based on the feedback to the NCF, Crop Over 2014 was “a fantastic festival” and therefore they were not looking to make major changes for 2015. However, some events from the festival would be tweaked, while new things introduced this year, like City Fest, would return.
