Everything Related to the Steelpan Instrument and Music

Good day friends,

I am pleased to inform you that we were able to acquire the necessary funds to attend SXSW 2015. 

On behalf of the family, I would like to convey a special note of thanks to the following:

Mrs. Amanda Barnett-McLeod (Trinidad)

Mr. Herman Andalcio (Chicago)

The West family (Trinidad)

Ask Promotions (Trinidad)

Golden Hands Steel Orchestra (Trinidad)

Ministry of Arts and Multiculturalism (Trinidad)

The above mentioned, all contributed in some way, making it possible for us to facilitate our performance at this major festival. I would also like to thank all supporters and well wishers for their fine words of encouragement and for helping raise awareness of our trip to SXSW.

We are scheduled to arrive in Austin, Texas on Thursday, March 19 and we are confirmed for two main stage performances as listed below:

Saturday, March 21 - 2:00pm - Austin Convention Center - 531 E 4th St. (Ballroom G)

Saturday, March 21 - 10:00pm - Karma Lounge - 105 E 5th St

I am aware that there are steelpan followers in Austin. Please feel free to approach us and introduce yourselves if you do see us.

I will send out another briefing after the trip. In the meantime please feel free to follow us on Twitter and/or Facebook for daily updates as we arrive in Austin.

Best regards,
