Hope for the young

By FELIX CHAUDHARY

YOUNGSTERS interested in a music career will have an opportunity to not only showcase their talent but also land a spot as a performer in the booming tourism trade in the Western Division.

Renowned music producer and artist Bill Beddoes said the recent boom in tourism meant there had to be a crop of new talent ready and in place to entertain guests.

"The only way we can develop our industry and nurture new talent is if we, the older guys, bring people who have a passion for music and give them a platform to show their musical skills," he said.

"I have seen this happen with my children, Billy Junior and Nikita, and they have grown so much over the past year.

"This year, I have decided to open the door to any young person who has a desire to make a living playing music.

"I can provide expert guidance and also slot them into venues that my band performs at to give them a feel for what the live music scene is like."

Beddoes said seasoned artists need to provide a pathway for new talent to meet the expectations of resort properties.
