Frank Collymore Hall to Host Nicholas Brancker for City Nights Show & Student Workshop
The Frank Collymore Hall continues its commitment to the development of Barbados’ cultural industries with the City Nights project.
In keeping with its interest in encouraging the sustainable growth and development of the arts, the Frank Collymore Hall has selected a 100% Barbadian all-star line-up for the October 10th and 11th shows starting at 8PM. As part of its developmental work, the Frank Collymore Hall will also facilitate a workshop on 8th October for members of the student music community to engage with the show’s musicians. The workshop will offer insight on topics ranging from production to musicality and industry experiences.
This years’ event, ‘City Nights – Influences‘, features the work of internationally acclaimed Barbadian artist Nicholas Brancker along with guest artistes Edwin Yearwood, Alison Norville-Forde and Biggie Irie among others. As homage to the theme, ‘influences’, Nicholas will be performing musical interpretations of the artistes who’ve touched his musical career and will bring his genius home with his own hits.
Speaking about the event, Manager of the Frank Collymore Hall, Fran Wickham notes, “as the cultural arm of the Central Bank of Barbados, the Frank Collymore Hall is committed to the development and sustainability of the creative arts and this year’s City Nights promises to offer another high quality and affordable show that we can all be proud of. Over the past few years we have successfully worked on revamping this annual production. We seize the opportunity to showcase Nicholas Brancker, one of Barbados’ iconic artistes, along a mixture of well established and young, upcoming members of his band.”
