Special Guest Jeff Peterson:
Recognized as one of Hawaii’s most versatile musicians, Jeff Peterson is at the heart of the Hawaiian music scene today. His passion for the guitar has allowed him to shine as a solo artist and his deep knowledge of multiple open tunings as well as standard tuning, and his ability to both read music and play by ear, has given him the opportunity to collaborate with a wide variety of solo artists, groups, and orchestras. His focus on Slack Key guitar, classical, and jazz music has allowed him to develop a unique and transcendent voice on the guitar while being deeply rooted in the traditions of his Hawaiian heritage. He has contributed to two Grammy Award-winning recordings and has been honored with three Na Hōkū Hanohano Awards in Hawaii. His latest solo CD, Maui on My Mind, won a hoku for Slack Key Album of the Year in 2010 and was nominated for a Grammy. His most recent release features his songwriting, performing, and producing on Amy Hanaiali`i and Slack Key Masters of Hawaii, which also won Hoku Awards and another Grammy nomination.
Born on the Island of Maui, Jeff Peterson grew up on the slopes of Haleakala where he was introduced to the rich heritage of Hawaiian music by his father, a paniolo, or Hawaiian cowboy, on the Haleakala Ranch.
As a performer, Jeff has had the honor to work with such prominent artists as Eric Clapton, James Galway, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Aaron Neville, Boz Scaggs, the Honolulu Symphony, and with many others. He has four recordings with Riley Lee: Maui Morning, Bamboo Slack Key, Haiku and Haleakala. He also released five solo slack key guitar CDs: Maui On My Mind, Kahealani, Slack Key Jazz, The Artistry of Jeff Peterson, and Pure Slack Key.
He has traveled to Europe, Asia, Australia, and across the US. He has performed for former president Bill Clinton and Senator Hillary Clinton. He performs regularly in Waikiki, at Maui’s Slack Key Show and elsewhere in both solo and group settings. He taught the guitar at the University of Hawaii and is one of the premier instructors at George Kahumoku’s Annual Maui Slack Key Guitar & Ukulele Workshop.
He attended the 47th Annual Grammy Awards in 2005, when a recording featuring Jeff and other island artists, Slack Key Guitar, Volume 2 (Palm Records), won the first ever Grammy Award for best Hawaiian recording. He is also featured Masters of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar, Vol 2 (Daniel Ho Creations) which won the 2010 Grammy.
