SCIPIO "Skip" or "Sarge" Sargeant was born in Trinidad.  At an early age he distinguished himself as one of the top musicians in his home country.  As co-arranger for Despers USA, Sargeant won a record six consecutive New York Panorama Championships. 

He anticipates that his 2002 CD release entitled Strings and Things at Christmas, will be appreciated by many as an annual 'seasonal staple'.  Hear Sarge's account of the steelband movement and his viewpoint of the genius of the legendary Rudolph Charles, during his chat with When Steel Talks.
