Beausejour, Carriacou, April 12, 2014-
Jamaican reggae artist Capleton is the headline act for the 2014 Carriacou Maroon Music Festival. He is expected to entertain fans at the historic Belair Heritage Park on Saturday, April 26th, as part of the line up for the three-day festival.

Visiting groups from Grenada and Tobago are also slated to participate in the festival, which is scheduled for April 25th-27th.

A cabinet-appointed committee, headed by James "Skylark" Stafford, has been selected to plan and execute the 2014 festival, whose goals include ensuring that the culture of Carriacou and Petite Martinique is passed on from generation to generation.

Speaking at a media launch Stafford said that patrons can expect a festival with a difference, showcasing the unique cultural aspects of Carriacou and Petite Martinique.

One of the major sponsors of the festival is the Grenada Tourism Authority. Marketing Executive Rina Mills said with the authority's primary role being the marketing of the islands, they are giving the festival their full support to ensure it’s a success.

In a demonstration of government's support to the festival, Senator Hon. Jester Emmons, along with Permanent Secretary with responsibility for Local Government, Bernadette Lendore-Sylvester; and Acting Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Carriacou and Petite Martinique Affairs, Gertrude Niles, were present at the media launch.

The festival opening commences on Friday, April 25th, with a village maroon at the Belair Heritage Park. The festival culminates at the famous Paradise Beach on Sunday, April 27th, 2014.
