HAWAIIAN SLACK KEY GUITAR FESTIVAL

 

Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar (ki-ho’alu) is a truly one of the greatest acoustic guitar traditions in the world. Ki-ho’alu , which literally means “loosen the key,” is the Hawaiian language name for the solo finger picked style.  Many Hawaiian songs and slack key guitar pieces reflect themes like stories of the past and present and people’s lives. But it is the tropical surroundings of Hawai’i, with its oceans, volcanoes and mountains, waterfalls, forest, plants and animals, that provide the deepest source of inspiration for Hawaiian music.  Event will feature up to 16 performing artists in the Slack Key Guitar Genre including award winning artists and newcomers. Also appearing will be a couple of special guest from Hawaii and the mainland. The event will also feature "Made In Hawaii" products and favorite foods and snacks. Throughout the day, the festival will also be giving away many artists cds, festival t-shirts and a brand new taylor guitar to some lucky winner.
