Edward Herring Rowe passes


Share post:

Songwriter Edward Herring Rowe has died.

The 68-year old had been ailing for some time and was found dead by a neighbour at his Lightfoot Lane, St Michael, home today.

His brother Michael Rowe confirmed his passing moments ago.

Herring wrote for several calypsonians, including Pompey and The Mighty Grynner.

In 2011, he was honoured by the National Cultural Foundation with a Crop Over Stalwart Award for more than 30 years’ contribution to the development of the art form. 

Two years later, he also received a Barbados Tourism Authority (BTA) Award, along with Clairmont Pompey Pilgrim, for their song Barbados Is Magic. (TG)
