This calypso, written in the vein of a Belafonte ballad, was featured in the movie A Mighty Wind. Composer Harry Shearer performed this piece as the bass player for the fictional folk group The Folksman. There is nothing fictional about the appeal of this tune or how well-suited it is for a steel band. If you are looking for a traditional calypso ballad that will be new and fresh to your audience, look no further because this piece is sure to please.
