The Ministry of Tourism, Sports and Culture joins with the Carnival Development Corporation, the National Cultural Foundation and other cultural friends to extend deepest condolences to the Adam’s Family on the passing of Dr. Edgar ‘Doc’ Adams, a cultural stalwart who passed away on 14 Feb 2019.
Doc’s friendly ways and constructive queries facilitated the creation and improvement of many works of art. Over the years, he provided support in a moral and financial way to a number of artists from many disciplines.
Dr. Adams made an indelible mark on our nation, this was evident by the significant number of stories he told about the communities and the numerous recordings he produced about the history of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
Additionally, he was a custodian of significant collections of local writings, including unpublished works of several local poets. Dr. Adams contributed significantly as a businessman and owner of ‘THE FISHNET’ restaurant. His restaurant has been known for providing wonderful food for the body and ‘abstract food’ to feed the mind. Notably, parts of the “Volcano Suite” were penned by his good friend Shake Kean while Shake sat at his establishment. Vincentian Jazz piano player, Monk Waldon was another artist who frequented and composed in that space.
