George Kahumoku Jr. & Ledward Kaapana – at The Cedar

George Kahumoku Jr.
Wednesday, February 5, 2014 - 7:30pm

KFAI is pleased to sponsor George Kahumoku Jr. and Ledward Kaapana at the Cedar Cultural Center on Wednesday, February 5, at 7:30 pm.

This one couldn't come at a better time of year: A night of balmy Hawaiian slack key guitar and ukulele music from two multiple Grammy Award-winning artists. Pull out your brightest Hawaiian shirt, and forget about the Minnesota winter for a couple of hours!

There’s a reason he’s been called Hawaii’s Renaissance man: George Kahumoku Jr. is a multiple Grammy Award and Hoku Award-winning master slack key guitarist, songwriter, world-traveling performer, high school and college teacher, artist and sculptor, storyteller and writer, farmer and entrepreneur.

Led Kaapana's mastery of stringed instruments, particularly slack key guitar, and his extraordinary baritone and leo ki`eki`e (falsetto) voices, have made him a musical legend. He has been thrilling audiences for more than 40 years. With easy-going style and kolohe (rascal) charm, he has built a loyal corps of Led Heads from Brussels to his birthplace on the Big Island of Hawaii.
