We cannot thank Sage Products enough for their support of not only GLSF14 but also of Potts & Pans. They have helped purchase instruments and have now made a significant contribution to helping make this festival possible. Thank you Sage Products!
Potts & Pans is the organization behind GLSF14. Along with being one of the guest artists, P&P is also the group that started this festival and runs it every year. Without Potts & Pans, there would be no Great Lakes Steelpan Festival.

Matt is the original creator of the Great Lakes Steelpan Festival. It was first conceived during a conversation with Denette Lynch when the two of them met at the Virginia Beach Panorama in 2012. The two discussed how funny it is that two people from the Midwest (Minnesota and Illinois) had to go all the way to Virginia to go to a steelband festival. That conversation is what created the initial spark that started the fire of GLSF.
