Dominican musician, Fred Anthony Nicholas is the recipient of the FLOW Creole Lifetime Award.

He was recognized by the telecommunications company recently for his dedicated service in the development of music in Dominica and the region.

Fred freelanced as a bass player, accompanied local artistes and also played on special band projects.

As a member of the sixth form Sisserou Singers instrumental folk and song, he has played on 20 of that group’s 22 annual productions.

Periodically, Nicholas accompanied the Kairi School of Music children’s choir and currently, he accompanies the children’s choir of the Dominica Institute for the Arts.

Music Educator, Pearl Christian said during the awards ceremony that Fred brings a high level of professionalism to any group in which he is involved.

He established a recording studio called ‘Home Alone Studios” where he produces and scores many songs for artistes preparing to enter various competitions.

He is also the arranger of all King Dice’s slow calypsos.

Meanwhile, Edgar Peltier received FLOW’s Special Employee Recognition Award for his successful execution and staging of FLOW’s flagship CITP event.

Ferdina Frampton of the Corporate and Communications Department at FLOW Dominica said Peltier is considered to be a “star employee” who is not only critical in leading the finance workflow for Creole in the Park, but in its substantive role as the main man heading”

Peltier has been an employee of Cable and Wireless/ FLOW for about 20 years and is said to have contributed immeasurably to the staging of CITP.

“He was there from the inception and served as part of a core planning committee,” Frampton said.

    Mr. Fred Nicholas, well done, praises and all accolades to you on this well deserved merit and recognition of your talents and reward to culturally dedicated Dominica.
    Just one observation, please clean up your chin hairstyle, even if it`s Rasta style, but can be better designed and styled. Come man, raise your profile, you are a star and role model to all our young musicians and people. You look worried and out of decorum. Get a manager and someone able to uplift your visible profile where our incoming young artistes can see you as this advantages role model to them. We desperately need role models in art (you) politics (Skerrit is this failure), but Hon. Lennox Linton is up there high as this professional politician and committed Dominica that we the people will trust and support him, UWP once in government. Fred you are in the musical art, so you have that role to play to our youth, who many of them are from poor homes seeking help to elevate themselves to higher heights. Thanks

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 6 Thumb down 17

      I have briefly met Mr. Nicholas and I am inspired by him. I do know some of his children and I can tell he raised them well. I also met his grandson who is so impressive for someone so young. So I can guarantee that despite your judgemental comment on his appearance, he is an inspiration and role model. And as a young person who will be voting for the first time… if u are any indication of the kind of people uwp followers are, then I can certainly tell u that u are no role model. When u judge someone by their appearance it doesn’t define them….it defines you. My mother taught me that. I was rooting for uwp and u changed my mind. Why would you even bring politics in this. It made you sound stupid.
