Egbert Moore

Lord Beginner (born Egbert Moore) was at the heart of the expansion of calypso music immediately after WW2. Originally from Trinidad, Beginner recorded and toured in New York with other leading members of the Trinidad's "Old Brigade" of calypsonians, but his cricket credentials were already established. In 1937 he wrote "Les Ames he played fine/Till he was bowled by the quicker ball from Constantine". In 1948 he emigrated to England on the Windrush, the first boat from the Caribbean bringing a new generation of immigrants to the UK. Also on the boat was the legendary calypsonian Lord Kitchener.
