Long-time Chatham resident Andy Wang is bringing The Masters of Hawaiian Music Tour featuring Grammy award-winning musicians to town. The one-night benefit concert showcases Hawaii’s unique acoustic guitar style, ʻukulele stylings, and rich storytelling that transport audiences to Hawaii’s tranquil waters and mountain views. Tickets for the Saturday, February 25, 2023, 7:00 pm show at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 200 Main Street, Chatham, are $25 advance/$30 at the door and can be purchased at http://hawaii.brownpapertickets.com. Proceeds benefit St. Paul’s programs and outreach.
“I’m delighted to bring authentic Hawaiian music and culture to Chatham — especially since last year’s show was canceled,” said Andy Wang, organizer of the show. “This enjoyable evening of acoustic music serves as a fundraiser for St. Paul’s outreach programs that help food insecure families, women, and children in our community.” These programs include Family Promise, the Interfaith Food Pantry, North Porch, Crossroads Camp and Retreat Center.
