Two Virtuosos of Slack Key Guitar

Keola Beamer is the Andres Segovia of the slack key guitar.” – Long Beach Press Telegram

“Jeff Peterson’s] manner is impeccable, his style exquisite”… “Brilliant” -Honolulu Advertiser

One is a Hawaiian legend who has stretched the boundaries of slack key guitar music while remaining true to the soul of its deeply Hawaiian roots.

The other is a rising star of the next generation of slack key players, who uses the style’s open tunings to explore multiple genres with ease and flair.

Together, they present an evening of superb guitar that explores the beauty of Hawaiian music as it reflects its native land, the range of Hawai‘i’s many cultural influences, and the complexity of technique that has shaped the distinctively resonant sounds of Hawai‘i.

Both Keola & Jeff are featured on the soundtrack of the film The Descendants, starring George Clooney.

They are joined by lovely dancer Moanalani Beamer, who brings hula and Hawaiian chants to the stage, and adds musical texture with ancient Hawaiian instruments.

    HI I would LOVE to win these tickets to surprise my boyfriend. He just moved here from Hilo, Hawaii and I know he gets homesick. This music night would be such a blast and mean so much to him and his culture.

    Aloha! I grew up dancing hula to Keola, and remember how special it was to see him live in concert when I was younger. You truly feel the spirit of the islands in his voice. I’d love to take my husband, so we can create new memories with the same beautiful music. Hana hou!

    I played the Uke for several years in school and would love to see someone play this instrument again. It seems like it has begun its rise in popularity so going to this show would spark an interest in playing again after all these years. I really enjoyed it and I am sure my husband and I would love this show.

    This sounds amazing and my husband should hear some good Hawaiian music before we head back to the islands to visit my family.
