Local calypsonian Kenneth ‘Rabo’ Silcott has been nominated for a Just Plain Folks award.
Just Plain Folks is a community of over 51,500 Songwriters, Recording Artists and Music Industry Professionals — and host to the world’s largest independent music awards. The awards, which started in 1999 recognises the best music submitted by members. JPF Founder Brian Austin Whitney felt the music made by the “other 98%” of the music world often ignored by the mainstream televised music awards shows deserved its own recognition.
