Musicians and singers descended on the Webster Memorial United Church in St Andrew on Wednesday to pay tribute to the life of Irvin “Carrot” Jarrett, former percussionist with reggae band Third World.

The 180 minute-plus service was a flowing free form concert of performances, spoken word tributes and oh, lots of drumming. For openers, the corps of drummers from local dance troupes L'Acadco and the National Dance Theatre Company (NDTC) heralded the start of proceedings. The NDTC's drummers would return later in the programme with excerpts from the music from their work Drumscore.

 

Third World original vocalist wPrilly Hamilton stepped forward to perform Always Around, a track written by Jarrett at the time of the birth of his first child, son Ard. The band's guitarist Stephen “Cat” Coore was soulful on cello for this piece.

 

Singer and percussionist Feluke, who is recovering from cancer, performed a moving blend of the classic hymn It is Well With My Soul while the trio of Elan Neil, Keisha Patterson and Renee Rattray also performed.
