It’s truly a can’t-miss event, with over 125 pan players performing at once!

Hailed as the “Paganini of the Steelpan,” Liam Teague’s commitment to demonstrating the great musical possibilities of the steelpan has taken him to throughout the world, and he has received many awards from his homeland of Trinidad and Tobago, including the Humming Bird National Award (Silver) and the Anthony N.
