"Virtuosic keepers of a cultural flame bringing folklore and cultural memory into a performance that unfolded as breezy entertainment." -New York Times
Three Masters, featured regularly at Mauis renowned Slack Key Show® share the uniquely Hawaiian styles of slack key guitar and ukulele, with origins in the early 19th century when Portuguese immigrants introduced the ukulele to Hawaii and Mexican cowboys brought guitars
along with their ranching knowledge. Ever since, Hawaiians have made these instruments their own.
Proceeds benefit St. Pauls programs and outreach.
