Harrison – The Harrison Festival Society’s 29th Season of the Performing Arts continues on Saturday, November 4th in the Harrison Memorial Hall with Toronto-based contemporary calypso band Kobo Town.
Founded and fronted by émigré Trinidadian songwriter Drew Gonsalves, Kobo Town’s music has been variously described as “an intoxicating blend of lilting calypsonian wit, dancehall reggae, and trombone-heavy brass” (Guardian).
The name of the band refers to the historic neighbourhood in Port-of Spain where calypso was born.
This will be the third time that Kobo Town has performed in Harrison’s Memorial Hall.
The concert date is 8:00pm on Saturday, November 4th inside the Harrison Memorial Hall. Doors will open at 7:30pm. Tickets are available at harrisonfestival.com, by calling 604-796-3554, or at the Agassiz Shoppers Drug Mart.
