Yesterday we featured the members of the Junior Calypso Monarch band. Missing at the time was Laura Payne, so we bring a brief bio on this second trumpeter with the band.

She is an accomplished musician and music teacher and since 2006, she has taught at a number of secondary schools. The Christ Church Foundation School teacher holds an Associate Degree in music and has been actively engaged in musical performance on the Crop-Over scene in a number of tents and this is her fourth year in the Junior Monarch band. She is a Solo Cornet player in the Barbados Defence Force Band where she holds the rank of Corporal, and is the current Acting Bandmaster.
