Hasely Crawford--the man

The PanJammers are in the midst of learning some new songs arranged by Patrik Bernhard, who also arranged Rock 'n' Roll Medley.

Lead Pan Christine did a little research about one song in particular, "Hazely Crawford." It seems that this song is inspired by a sprinter who in 1976 won Trinidad's first Olympic gold medal (Hasely Crawford). Below are some links to various bits of information.

At practice Monday, I discovered that one of our pan families had met Mr. Crawford in Trinidad!

No word yet on who, or what, Poom Poom is.
