Grenada Steel Band Association Remembers Ken “Professor” Philmore

The Passing of An Icon

Logo for Grenada Steel Band Association (GSBA)

Grenada, W.I. - It is with our deepest sympathy that we extend our prayers to the family and friends of Steel pan icon, Mr. Ken “Professor” Philmore.

On behalf of the entire steel band fraternity of Grenada, we pray that Almighty God will strengthen you in your time of grief.

The circumstances surrounding the passing of this icon can only be viewed as unfortunate and untimely.

The footprints “Professor” left will always be recorded in our history, they will always form part of the legacy and times of the global steel pan movement and for this we are eternally grateful.

We who are alive to owe it to him ensure that his legacy lives on.

To the members of the entire Pan Trinbago family, we say, stand firm, stay strong and never lose sight of the fragility of life, and what your life represents as part of an international movement.

Ken touched the lives of many with his enthusiasm for music, his passion for pan and his excitement for the stage. Many of our young arrangers in Grenada have embraced him as a role model for all the positive attributes that he imparted.

Thank you “Professor,” thank you pan man and arranger, thank you for your life which was loaned to us. We wish you eternal rest with Almighty God and may the Peace of the Holy Spirit remain with your family and friends as we mourn together.

God’s Blessings and Guidance.
