Slack-key masters perform on Maui

Concert Series moves to the Napili Kai Beach Resort

NAPILI, MAUI – Maui’s “Masters of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar” concert series began this week and runs through 2008, with concerts at the Napili Kai Beach Resort.

The concerts take place on Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. with master slack-key player George Kahumoku Jr. as host. They feature renowned slack-key players (next week will showcase Ledward Kaapana), as well as artists in traditional Hawaiian music such as ukulele and steel guitar.

Recordings of the concerts won the Grammy Award for Best Hawaiian Album in 2006 and 2007. The series has been held since 2003, until this year at the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua, which is under renovation.
