While we celebrate the spirit of aloha in New Mexico, let's think about our friends in Maui as well. We are teaming up with local halaus Ha'aheo O Hawai'i and Ka Lā Kapu to raise money for the Hawai`i Community Foundation's Maui Strong fund in conjunction with these shows. Both groups will be participating in the concert and pre-show activities. AMP will be collecting funds in conjunction with these concerts, as well as at the events, and will donate 100% of the funds collected to . AMP will cover the credit card fees on the donations. Donate here.
Come early for a hula demo and workshop with Ha'aheo O Hawai'i from 6:45 to 7:05.
Regular guest artists on George Kahumoku's renowned Masters of Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar series on Maui, and on his Grammy award-winning CDs, these Masters share the delightful experience of kī-hō‘alu (slack key guitar)—the distinctly Hawaiian style of open tunings, 'ukulele, and Hawaiian vocals.
Master slack key guitarist George Kahumoku Jr. is known as "Hawai'i's Renaissance Man": a four-time Grammy and multiple Na Hōkū Award winner, he is also a vocalist, storyteller, and songwriter. For this show, he is joined on stage by two other luminaries for an evening showcasing Hawai'i's lilting and lovely folk styles, with origins in the early 19th century Hawaiian paniolo (cowboy) culture.
The winner of multiple Na Hōkū Awards for Best Slack Key Guitar, virtuoso Jeff Peterson is a star of the next generation. Five of his songs are featured in the award-winning George Clooney film "The Descendants." Born on the Island of Maui, he was introduced to the rich heritage of Hawaiian music by his father, a paniolo on the Haleakala Ranch.
A master of the slack key guitar and National Heritage Fellow, Led Kaapana has been one of Hawaii’s most influential musicians for four decades. His mastery of stringed instruments, his exceptional picking style on slack key guitar and 'ukulele, and his extraordinary baritone to leo ki'eki'e (falsetto) vocal range, have made him a musical legend and earned him multiple Na Hōkū Awards.
