Montserrat Annual Festival Will Be Renamed in Honor of “The Mighty Arrow”

 

In honor of Montserrat-born soca icon, Alfonsus “Arrow” Cassell, who passed away on September 15, 2010, the island has renamed its annual Montserrat Festival to Arrow Festival. The announcement was made over the weekend by Minister Rueben Meade at the Montserrat Cultural Festival. Arrow was buried last month on the lawn of his home in Lime Kiln.

On December 28, 2010, Soca International will honor “The Mighty Arrow” with performances by Caribbean favorites, including Edwin Yearwood, Burning Flames, Shurwayne Winchester, Rupee, and many more.
