NAPILI – Maui’s own Grammy Award-winning Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar Productions will celebrate the fifth anniversary of their Masters of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar Concert Series with a special show on Wednesday, Oct. 22.
The concert is set for 7:30 p.m. in the Aloha Pavilion at Napili Kai Beach Resort.
Hosted by George Kahumoku Jr., the anniversary show will feature Ledward Kaapana, Uncle Richard Ho‘opi‘i and Kevin Brown, as well as talented young artists Peter deAquino and Sterling Seaton.
Kaapana has been a professional musician for over 40 years. He is known for his mastery of stringed instruments – particularly slack key guitar – and extraordinary baritone and leo ki‘eki‘e (falsetto) voice.
His easy-going style and kolohe (rascal) charm have made him a favorite of audiences from Brussels to his birthplace on the Big Island.
Best known as half of the popular Maui duo The Ho‘opi‘i Brothers, Uncle Richard has been practicing the traditional Hawaiian art of falsetto for most of his life..
