Three Masters, featured regularly at Maui's renowned "Slack Key Show," bring Hawai'i's unique folk styles, with origins in the early 19th century Hawaiian paniolo (cowboy) culture, to 21st century stages.
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.
"Kahumoku was an affable raconteur, mixing his dialogue with passionate renderings of material."
—Los Angeles Times
A talented multi-instrumentalist, Nathan Aweau has been part of such award-winning groups as HAPA, Ka'eo, and The Ali'i. His seven solo CDs have won him multiple Na Hoku Awards, including Male Vocalist of the Year (the only person to have won 3 times), Song of the Year (twice), and Island Album of the Year, among others.
"Nathan, on electric bass and acoustic guitar, shows an advanced understanding of harmony and orchestration... his singing style is effortless."
—New York Times
Slack Key Guitarist David "Kawika" Kahiapo most recently won two 2015 Na Hoku Awards for his 2 newest releases, one for Slack Key Guitar Album of the Year, the other for Island Album. A regular at Jack Johnson’s Kokua Fests, his slack key roots and commitment to Hawaiian culture run deep.
"Kawika Kahiapo's first solo album in more than a decade emphasizes his strength as a solo vocalist... who is also talented slack key guitarist. The songs... show him to be a guy with broad musical horizons."
Nathan Aweau and Kawika Kahiapo are regular guest artists on George Kahumoku's renowned Masters of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar® series on Maui, and his Grammy award-winning CDs. Together, these Masters share the delightful experience of kī-hō'alu (slack key guitar)—the distinctly Hawaiian style of open tunings, 'ukulele, and Hawaiian vocals.
