Grammy Award-Winning Hawaiian Musicians to Perform Fundraiser in Chatham

Long-time Chatham resident Andy Wang is bringing The Masters of Hawaiian Music Tour featuring Grammy award-winning musicians to town. The one-night only performance showcases Hawaii's unique acoustic guitar style, rich storytelling, and beautiful hula dancing that transports audiences to Hawaii’s tranquil waters and mountain views. Tickets for the Saturday, January 11, 2020, 7:00 pm show at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 200 Main Street, Chatham, are $25 advance/$30 at the door and can be purchased at http://hawaiian.brownpapertickets.com or by calling 800-838-3006. Proceeds benefit St. Paul’s programs and outreach.

“I’m excited to present authentic Hawaiian music and culture here in Chatham,” said Andy Wang, organizer of the show. “It’s going to be a great evening of acoustic music and also serves as a fundraiser for St. Paul’s on Main Street.” The benefit concert in Chatham is just one in a month-long tour that includes dates in New York, Minneapolis, Chicago, and Cleveland.    

This show marks George Kahumoku, Jr’s sixth time performing in Chatham, now a favorite stop during his national tours. The four-time Grammy winning slack key guitarist, known as “Hawaii’s Renaissance Man,” is a multiple Nā Hōkū Hanohano (Hawaiian Grammy) Award winner, a vocalist, storyteller, songwriter, author, teacher, sculptor, farmer, and chef.

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 Hoku Awards. 

David Kawika Kahiapo has won two multiple Na Hoku Awards in a number of categories, including Slack Key Guitar Album of the Year and Island Album of the Year. A regular at Jack Johnson's Kokua Festivals, his slack key roots and commitment to Hawaiian culture run deep.

Hawaiian slack key guitar, kī hō‘alu, is one of the world's great acoustic guitar traditions. Relatively unknown outside of Hawaii, slack key guitar is often confused with and actually pre-dates the more well known Hawaiian lap steel that developed in the late 1880s. Slack key was developed by Hawaiian cowboys who "slacked" the strings of guitars brought by Mexican cowboys hired by King Kamehameha III to teach Hawaiians better ranching methods. Slack key is a finger-picked style, and the tradition continues to evolve from techniques and tunings handed down through the generations.
