Crop Over Folk Concert hits the mark
Hundreds of people filled the Frank Collymore Hall last night for a concert that looked at the events that led to the 1937 uprising.
The occasion was the annual Crop Over Folk Concert, which this year took on the form of a folk musical – How Hard the Times.
It followed the exploits of two families – the Thorpes, a planter class family, and the Blackmans, a working class family.
The historical fiction was written by Michelle Cox and Anthony Hinkson and focused on the conditions that preceded and contributed to the event.
