We are sorry to have to cancel today's Hawaiian workshops due to travel delays.  The group will be here in time for the show tonight, but they will not be able to host the workshops. We'll still have fun activities at South Broadway Cultural Center before the show, so come early, dance a hula, have some food from Kimo's Hawaiian BBQ and bring your ukulele and share a song.

This workshop is followed by a slack key guitar workshop with Kawika Kahiapo. Single workshops are $37.50 and both workshops are $63.50 (including service charges).

There's a reason he's been called Hawaii's Renaissance man: George Kahumoku Jr. is a 4-time Grammy® Award winner in Hawaiian music as well as multiple Na Hoku Hanohano Award-winner. He is a slack key guitar master, songwriter, world-traveling performer, high school and college teacher, artist and sculptor, storyteller and writer, farmer, chef, and entrepreneur. He continues to produce at least one new CD per year, from solo works to his award-winning Masters of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar series, based on his long-running weekly Slack Key Show on Maui with some of the finest performers in Hawaiian music. Always happy to share his knowledge, he runs an annual slack key and ‘Ukulele workshop every June.

George's workshop will take participants through the fundamentals of slack ‘Ukulele, including the following classic slack key basics:

1.    Slack key ‘Ukulele key of C.

2.    Slack key ‘Ukulele - in taro patch F

3.    Hawaiian songs

4.    Modulations in taro patch F from key of F to key of C, Bb, key of G, A, or D.

Students should know how to tune their ‘ukulele and play at least one song.
