Legends Tent is slated to kick off this weekend and the calypso series will see an increase in the number of females participating.That is according to Tent organizer, Sylvester ‘Socrates’ Hodge who said that based on the early registration this year they have seen an uptick in the number of females registered ahead of the Tents.

“I’ve got about nine from Nevis and we have up until last evening others coming so we have about twenty-five calypsonians to start with. We have three new females coming from Nevis, they’ve joined the fray.There’s a heightened interest especially since we now have a national monarch so they’re coming out and there’s a regional competition.
