Masters of Hawaiian Music with George Kahumoku Jr, Nathan Aweau, & Kawika Kahiapo
We are delighted to announce the return of Hawaiian music to St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Chatham, NJ. Three Masters, featured regularly at Maui's renowned Slack Key Show bring Hawaii'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 Hawaii's Renaissance Man, is a multiple Na Hk Hanohano (Hawaiian Grammy) Award winner, a vocalist, storyteller, songwriter & author, teacher, sculptor, farmer, and chef.
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.
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.
