Trinidad's Skiffle Steel Orchestra

Sweet Briar College will welcome back Trinidad’s famed Skiffle Steel Orchestra for a special concert at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 8, 2019 in Murchison Lane Auditorium at Babcock Fine Arts Center. 

Skiffle, based in San Fernando and known around the world, has repeatedly won Trinidad’s prestigious Panorama competition in the traditional category and the World Steelband Music Festival. The music is indigenous to Trinidad and reflects the country’s particular culture and history. The orchestra takes its name from the genre of music known as “skiffle” and defined by the use of found instruments. Today’s steel pans evolved from discarded 55-gallon oil drums, long abundant in the former British colony where oil and gas are economic mainstays.
