CEG & T Presents Masters of Hawaiian Music: George Kahumoku Jr, Herb Ohta Jr, and special guest Andy Wang

Three Masters, featured regularly at Maui’s renowned “Slack Key Show®” share Hawai‘i’s unique folk styles, with origins in the early 19th-century Hawaiian paniolo (cowboy) culture.

Four-time Grammy-winner, master slack key guitarist George Kahumoku Jr., known as “Hawai‘i’s Renaissance Man”, is a multiple Na Hōkū Hanohano (Hawaiian Grammy) Award winner, a vocalist, storyteller, songwriter & author, teacher, sculptor, farmer, and chef.

‘Ukulele virtuoso Herb Ohta Jr is one of today’s most prolific `ukulele masters. Influenced by jazz, R&B, Latin, and Brazilian music, he puts his stamp on Hawaiian music by pushing the limits of tone and technique on this beautiful instrument. His natural talent and superb playing have earned him 7 Na Hōkū Awards, including the 2021 ‘Ukulele Album of the Year.

Andy Kūlana Wang plays traditional Hawaiian slack key guitar and ʻukulele, and sings Hawaiian music from the heart, with a style that transports listeners back home to the islands. He has shared the stage with such artists as HAPA and the Makaha Sons and has been featured at Hawaiian Slack Key Festivals.
