Barbados’s “Peaceful Warrior” David Kirton shares his music at NACA National Conference
When most of us will be preparing for sleep Sunday February 20th Barbados’s Peaceful Warrior singer songwriter, David Kirton, will be stepping on to the stage in St. Louis for the National Association for Campus Activities Convention (NACA). NACA represents 950 college and university members and over 500 associate members who are making the pilgrimage to St. Louis to seek out the best new performers for their school activities calendar.
Kirton accompanied by lead guitarist Andre Johnson will be performing on The St. Louis Stage with a lively acoustic set featuring hits such as ‘Green Camouflage’ and ‘Cool Breezin’ and new release for 2011 ‘Hand to Mouth’.
The showcase is sponsored by Barbadian Agencies, The Association of Music Entrepreneurs (AME) , and the Copyright Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (COSCAP).
“Of all of the various musical trade events NACA is perhaps the one is most relevant from an immediate return on investment point of view,” says AME board member Phil Philips.
“In an environment where markets are shrinking and Caribbean artistes and performers are finding it more difficult to secure on-going engagements in the diaspora, NACA provides an unprecedented opportunity to build almost immediate markets,” Phillips said.
Kirton’s unique sound and charismatic showmanship led him to a myriad of eclectic venues with this acoustic performance, including The Royal Chelsea Flower Show in London — where he met famed Beatles producer George Martin – Fashion Has No Borders (Toronto), the Virgin Atlantic Barbados Music Festival and The World Travel Market, EXCEL London.
