[George Town, Grand Cayman – Tuesday, 29 October 2019] – Pirates Week is pleased to bring a great line up of local and international music to the Festival this year, including Cayman’s premier traditional ensemble; Swanky Kitchen Band.

You can catch the Swanky at the holiday Monday Culture Shop event from 4:00pm on the main stage- then follow Swanky around Grand Cayman as each District Heritage Day committee welcomes the band in celebration of traditional Caymanian musical stylings who will entertain local crowds with original songs, as well as a mix of Top 40 hits and Caymanian folk songs like “Munzie Boat”, “Conch Na Ga No Bone” and others.

“We are so pleased to have Swanky Kitchen Band on board not only for the Culture Shop on holiday Monday but also at the districts for the evening musical events,” said Pirates Week General Manager, Melanie McField.

“While it is important that each district organise and host their annual display of traditional art, food and artifacts; we believe showcasing traditional folk songs and Caymanian musical stylings is imperative to the story we tell of the way Caymanians lived and survived 100 years ago,” said Ms. McField.
