Tribute to Trevor D. Rhone @ Backyard Labrish

 Geoffrey Philp, a successful Jamaican poet and novelist in the Diaspora, joins The Backyard to help us celebrate and honour the late Trevor D. Rhone.

Mr. Rhone, a leading Caribbean playwright and screenwriter, co-wrote the 1972 hit, The Harder They Come, which helped introduce reggae music and urban Jamaican culture to international audiences. Rhone also wrote and directed several other hits including Smile Orange and School’s Out. Considered a "Master of Tragicomic,” Mr. Rhone leaves a strong cultural legacy.

This week's featured guest, Mr. Geoffrey Philp, was referred to as "Funny and Fearless" by The Daily Gleaner in a review of his short story collection, Who's Your Daddy: "Philp writes without fear or favour. He tells his stories with honesty, throwing away the pen of pretentiousness to weave simple, but poignant plots with a down-to-earth style, which is refreshing.”

Mr. Philp, who earned his Master of Arts in Creative Writing, is the recipient of several awards and has penned several articles, poems, children's books, short stories, and maintains an active blog: Geoffrey Philp’s Blog Spot.

Join us as we welcome fellow Kingstonian, Geoffrey Philp, to The Backyard to help us honour the accomplishments of Trevor D. Rhone as we continue to preserve the rich culture of Jamaica, "Land We Love."
