What: George Kahumoku Jr. & Keoki Kahumoku: Generations

Where: Pearson Lakes Art Center
Pearson Lakes Art Center Presents
GEORGE KAHUMOKU JR. & KEOKI KAHUMOKU
One of the great traditions in Hawaiian Slack Key guitar—indeed in all Hawaiian culture—is the passing on of music and cultural practices from one generation to the next. This intimate concert offers you the rare opportunity to experience the warm bond of father and son, sharing a slack key geneology even as each makes ki-ho‘alu (slack key) stylings his own. Four-time Grammy-winner, master slack key guitarist George Kahumoku Jr., known as Hawai‘i’s Renaissance Man, is also a multiple Na Hōkū Hanohano (Hawaiian Grammy) Award winner. Keoki Kahumoku, fifth generation slack-key guitarist, began performing with his father George and his uncle Moses Kahumoku; like his dad, his performance is as much about his relaxed, engaging “talk story” as his wide Hawaiian repertoire. A family affair, this concert will also include hula by George’s wife Nancy.
Share the true aloha of Hawaiian family traditions with captivating slack key guitar, along with hilarious stories, down-home vocals, and heartwarming melodies in this very special concert on Tuesday, February 21, at 7:30 p.m.
George plays on the soundtrack for the recent George Clooney film The Descendants.
George will be accompanied by his son and fifth generation slack-key guitarist Keoki Kahumoku began performing with his father, George Kahumoku, Jr., and his uncle, Moses Kahumoku, in 1990.
The experience will start with a Hawaiian Luau at the PLAC, served by Remington’s Restaurant. Then visit our Hawaiian experience stations, Sunset Travel’s vacation planning booth, pineapple tasting table, chocolate covered macadamia nut samples, This Week Oahu’s Publications table, sweet Maui onion chips tasting, and so much more.
Call the box office at 712-332-7029 for reservations to the show and the Luau.
