Vincentian musical icon Franklyn “Frankie” Mc. Intosh is to be honored for his outstanding lifetime contribution to the development of Caribbean music.

He will be bestowed this honor at Accolade 2 – A Tribute to Frankym Mc Intosh – to be held on October 6th at the Russell’s Auditorium in Kingstown.

Accolade is an annual event founded by retired Police Inspector Arden Tannis, through A/A Tannis Promotions, to recognize outstanding Caribbean Lifetime artistes/personalities.

Renowned Vincentian-born musical arranger and producer Franklyn “Frankie” McIntosh said he is pleased to be receiving honors in St. Vincent and the Grenadines for his contribution to music.

Since the mid-1970s, McIn¬tosh has arranged over 2,500 songs and led recording sessions with almost every important calypsonian and Soca artist in the Caribbean.

He is a member of the elite pantheon of arrangers, including Ed Watson, Le-ston Paul, Clive Bradley, and Pelham Goddard, who helped forget the revolutionary Soca style in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Speaking at a news conference this morning, Mr. McIntosh said he is excited about the recognition and looks forward to networking with fellow musicians at the event.
