An international collaboration celebrating the vibrancy of Calypso, the steel pan, and story telling from Trinidad and Tobago, comes to More Music in Morecambe on Saturday 20th March.
Kaiso and Steel is a creative collaboration between a steel pan player, a drummer and a Trinidadian singer/musician. The Kaiso and Steel Spring Tour will be starting in Newcastle Gateshead then playing at venues across the country, including More Music’s newly refurbished performance space on Devonshire Road, Morecambe.
The programme will be packed with ‘old time’ calypsos and steel pan music, telling stories about love, history and relationships. The performance looks at how calypsos and steel pan music were used to comment on all aspects of life in Trinidad & Tobago.
Local steel band Pantabulous will get the evening off to a flying start. They are a local community outfit and have performed at the West End Festival and Catch the Wind kite festival delighting the crowds with their energetic playing and infectious rhythms.
This guarantees to be a fun live music night in Morecambe suitable for all ages. More Music’s performance space includes a fully licensed bar serving the Kaiso and Steel Rum punch!
There’s plenty of free parking near by and for public transport buses 2 and 2a come directly to the West End of Morecambe from Lancaster.
The performance starts at 8pm, tickets are available in advance from More Music on 01524 831997 or on the door, and are priced at £8 (£4 Concessions).
