UWI revue tribute to Gabby

Last Friday night, Dr Anthony Mighty Gabby Carter was honoured in a tribute concert. The revue, entitled Windforce, written and directed by Kellie Cadogan, was a combination of music, dance and sketches, underscored by the music of the calypso and folk maestro. The revue featured some of the most popular of Gabby’s musical anthology, taking short reviews of some of his most controversial, thought-provoking and witty material.
