Norman Adam Darway will launch his book, Stories in Steel-A True Account of the Invention and Emergence of the Steelband Movement, at St James Amphitheatre, Western Main Road, ST James, on Tuesday from 10 am.
The launch, which will be hosted by Guardian Associate Editor Peter Ray Blood, is the culmination of years of research into the history of T&Tís prized national instrument and the nationís culture..
Stories in Steel is a narrative about the origins of the steelpan and the evolution of the steelband movement from its earliest notorious origins, told in a unique blend of first person accounts and extracts from the media of the day.
Darway was a member of the Invaders Steel Orchestra, and one of the select few who can claim to have witnessed the evolution of the steelpan first hand, through his direct association with icons such as Ellie Mannette and others.
Copies of Stories in Steel will be available at an introductory price of $35.
