The performer, the late Alfred Pragnell, was a multi-talented individual. The author, the late Jeanette Layne-Clarke was herself a prolific writer and joined with the talents of the late and beloved poet Frank Collymore, the Barbadian cultural heritage was enriched, recorded and treasured for posterity. Do enjoy.
