“A Matter Of Money” – Jeanette Layne-Clarke (Barbados)

“A Matter Of Money” is part of Jeanette Layne-Clarke’s popular radio series called “Dumplings In De Stew”.  Alfred Pragnell, a well-known storyteller, along with other Bajan actors perform the humorous story in the clip above.

Layne-Clarke who passed in 2009,  was a celebrated Bajan radio producer, columnist, creative writer, editor and novelist.

According to the National Cultural Foundation’s (NCF) website, Barbados’ National Independence Festival of Creative Arts (NIFCA)  “is the concept and dream of the late Arden Clarke and his wife Jeanette Layne-Clarke, who, with a group of committed cultural aficionados, coordinated and staged the first festival in November of 1973.”
