Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music
When Steel Talks extends condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of the great Dr. Pat Bishop. She was a true champion of the steelpan instrument, its music and of culture in general. Dr. Bishop passed away on Saturday August 20 after collapsing at a high-level meeting of her peers in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, convened with the aim of furthering the country’s culture.
Many are sharing their thoughts, memories and knowledge of this irreplaceable individual and historic cultural activist in the realm of the steelband art form, and overall culture of Trinidad and Tobago.

A friend-a human being who had a real connection to the Arts--our thing, and yet could have held a high place in the world of colonial music, which she made ours as well. Sad, as we spoke on Thursday, with promises to meet soon. Deepest sympathy to Gillian and others of her extended family, with the Lydians, and her friends. Let us bear her well in our memory; let us mark the spaces she has occupied; and the routes she has paved for Pan.
So sad to hear about the passing of the great Dr. Pat Bishop. My condolences to her family, friends and the Lydian choir.
She will be greatly missed. May she rest in peace.
Deepest condolences and sincerest sympathies to her family and may her eternal soul R.I.P.
