The Ministry of Creative Economy, Culture and Sports has announced plans to honour the legacy of late musician Adrian “Boo” Husbands with the establishment of an award in his name, to be presented to the Most Outstanding Tent Band of the Crop Over Season.
While not committing to a start date, Minister John King explained that patrons attending the calypso tents would have the opportunity to vote for the most outstanding band, based on the following criteria: image; musicality (sensitivity to, knowledge of, or talent for music); togetherness; passion and communication with the audience.
King said the use of the theme Judge We! would serve to energise the patrons into participating in the exercise. The winner of the award will be announced at the Crop Over Festival Awards, following its implementation.
The Minister of Culture disclosed that plans are also in train to establish the Adrian Boo Husbands Scholarship Fund, which would assist young musicians in pursuing their studies.
He added that he hoped the initiative “would honour Mr Husband’s passion for mentoring young musicians, calypsonians and singers”. (BGIS)
