“Virtuosic keepers of a cultural flame bringing folklore and cultural memory into a performance that unfolded as breezy entertainment.” -New York Times
The Masters of Hawaiian Music Tour featuring Grammy award-winning musicians showcases Hawaii’s unique acoustic guitar style, rich storytelling, and beautiful hula dancing that transports audiences to Hawaii’s tranquil waters and mountain views.
Proceeds benefit St. Paul’s programs and outreach.
This show marks George Kahumoku, Jr’s sixth time performing in Chatham, now a favorite stop during his national tours. The four-time Grammy winning slack key guitarist, known as “Hawaii’s Renaissance Man,” is a multiple Nā Hōkū Hanohano (Hawaiian Grammy) Award winner, a vocalist, storyteller, songwriter, author, teacher, sculptor, farmer, and chef.
National Heritage Fellow, Led Kaapana has been one of Hawaii’s most influential musicians for four decades. His mastery of stringed instruments, his exceptional picking style on slack key guitar and ukulele, and his extraordinary baritone to leo ki’eki’e (falsetto) vocal range, have made him a musical legend and earned him multiple Na Hoku Awards.
David Kawika Kahiapo has won two multiple Na Hoku Awards in a number of categories, including Slack Key Guitar Album of the Year and Island Album of the Year. A regular at Jack Johnson’s Kokua Festivals, his slack key roots and commitment to Hawaiian culture run deep.
