The Graduates Calypso Tent says it has raised the fee to enter its Tent Shows for 2019.
Speaking at a press briefing which was held by the SVG Calypsonians Association on Wednesday, Representative of the Graduates Calypso Tent, Glenroy “Homie” Delplesche said they have raised their fee from ten dollars to fifteen dollars to address many of the costs of hosting the shows.
He says they will also be holding a number of Tent Shows outside of their Preliminary Judging Show as they seek to have the nation’s young drawn back into supporting Calypso music.
Mr. Delplesche says they will be staging their first show on May 28th, followed by another event on June 4th and the preliminaries will take place on June 11th.
Representative from the On-tour Calypso Tent, Grantly “Ipa” Constance say they have raised the entrance price for their shows to fifteen dollars as well.
