Bequia Music Festival is not to be missed
There aren’t many places you can listen to top musicians in a locale no more than 10 feet from a sugary-soft, white sand, tropical beach. These are two claims to fame of the Bequia Music Festival. Set for January 18-21, 2018, venues this year are the Frangipani Hotel, Bequia Plantation Hotel and De Reef Bar & Restaurant, all overlooking Admiralty Bay. What’s more, one of the headliners is New York’s Sean Harkness, an instrumental guitarist who earned the BroadwayWorld Cabaret Award for Best CD Release in 2014.
Caribbean artists include Anguillan vocalist and X Factor contestant, Deanna Mussington; Trinidadian classical and flamenco guitarist, Stefan Roach; and Bequia’s own amazing singer/songwriter, Amanda “Cloud” Gooding. Most concerts take place in the evening, which gives all day to enjoy sightseeing around this 7-square-mile Grenadine island known as a fantastic cruising destination.
