Conversation with Hollister Smith of Pan Elders - May 04, 2017

An interview with Mr. Hollister Smith , the leader of San Fernando's unheralded , unsponsored, four time winner (the so-called "beaver trick") of the Panorama Medium Band Competition, the Pan Elders.

Anyone interested in , and appreciative of , the practical realities facing a modern unsponsored steelband today , and the obstacles faced in creating and maintaining a successful steelband organization , with limited external assistance ,should check this out.

Sometimes we get so focused on issues relating to the competence and integrity of the steelband organization ( and not without cause) we miss (or forget )the big picture.

Once again , thank you Mr. Hollis Clifton for your outstanding work supporting our culture.

Thanks for the post Glenroy and thank-you Hollis Clifton, very informative. The hard realities of managing a community unsponsored steel-band, the decision-making involved in its growth and success. Quality leadership in service to others.
