Three Masters, featured regularly at Maui’s renowned “Slack Key Show®” share the uniquely Hawaiian styles of slack key guitar and ‘ukulele. From 19th century origins when Portuguese immigrants introduced the ‘ukulele and Mexican cowboys brought guitars together with ranching experience, Hawaiians have made these instruments their own in songs that resonate, delight, and evoke authentic Hawai‘i.
George Kahumoku, Jr’s relaxed manner and entertaining stories frame his easy-going slack key guitar style. The slack key guitar is a traditional Hawaiian style of open tunings with embellishments unique to Hawaii, and George is a Grammy Award-winning master of the craft.
