It saddens me because I spoke with him officially to inform him of his induction or his honor and he was very elated, he was very happy and he told me that when I come down he will be more than happy to give me his entire story. I came down and one day after I miss him. So now his story is gone with him.”Meanwhile Bruno confirmed that the members of the Dominica Calypso Hall of Fame will attend Harrigan’s funeral to pay their last respects as well as document the funeral which will be reproduced at the Hall of Fame. Bruno says though Harrigan’s death has left a huge void for the 2012 Kaiso Hall of Fame, this will not dampen the proceeding but they will use his death as “life for the event”.Dominica Vibes News Share Share Tweet LocalNews 2012 Dominica Calypso Hall of Fame will celebrate the life of Urban Harrigan by: – January 23, 2012 21 Views no discussions Share Sharing is caring!
