“CaneFire is sweeter than Caroni brown sugar and don’t doubt me” – Trinidad Guardian
“Edge is what separates CaneFire from their contemporaries in the Caribbean jazz scene” – Errol Nazareth
CaneFire was formed in 2005 by Ledbetter, who had cut his chops as musical director for Trinidadian calypso legend David Rudder. Jeremy wanted to shatter the stereotypes associated with Caribbean music and particularly the steelpan. Here this often-abused instrument is rescued from the sins of a thousand “island music” caricatures and plays its leading role with pride and integrity.
In recent years CaneFire has taken their unique brand of Caribbean Latin Jazz from Newfoundland to the Yukon, to South America and the Caribbean. They have released two albums of original music, both of which have garnered rave reviews and seen time on radio charts in Canada and abroad.
