Get taken away to the tropics with Island Time Steel Drums! Scott Paulson and Barbara Smith are a tropical duo that delights in sharing the happy sounds, upbeat vibes, and amazing history and culture of Caribbean Steel “Pan” music with audiences. The focus of Island Time is not only to entertain listeners, but to get people excited about this great body of music, and to tell the story about, and bring a deeper understanding to, the culture of the island of Trinidad and how that gave birth to one of the few new acoustic instruments of modern times. The pair’s upbeat repertoire ranges from easygoing calypsos to fiery Trinidadian Socas, with some American Pop thrown in for good measure.
