26th Annual Ki Ho’alu Guitar Festival

Sunday, June 25, 2017; A&B Amphitheater; 1:00 pm – 7:00 pm/Gates at 12:30 pm

An all-star lineup including some of Hawai‘i’s best slack key guitar players will perform a full afternoon of melodious Hawaiian music at this FREE festival! Kī Hō`alu, translating literally from the Hawaiian as “loosen the key,” indicating the tuning in slack key guitar technique, is a musical tradition dating back to 19th century paniolo who played around the campfire after completing a day of ranch work. Artists performing in the festival this year include Kevin & Ikaika Brown, Stephen Inglis, Blayne Asing, Aja Gample, Ho'okena, George Kuo, George Kahumoku & Friends, Brother Noland, Paul Togioka, Ian O’Sullivan, Kamuela Kahoano, Danny Carvalho, Donald Kaulia, Dwight Kanae, Wayne Johnson, and Makana.

Slack key has become known as one of the world’s great acoustic guitar methods, especially since the Grammy Awards recognized Hawaiian music as a category all its own. An abundance of relaxed lawn seating gives the event an informal, local-style atmosphere, making it easy to lounge all afternoon. Festival-goers are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs, blankets, or lauhala mats and relax on the grassy lawn to fully enjoy the laid-back music by famed guitar players. This is a family-friendly event: All generations can enjoy the slack key guitar tradition, with both new music and classic favorites.
The Kī Hō`alu Festival is presented by Maui Arts & Cultural Center, sponsored by The Maui News, with additional support from the County of Maui, Art Works, Speedi Shuttle, and Hawai‘i Tourism Authority, and with additional aloha by Pacific Radio Group/KPOA and the  Kī Hō`alu Foundation.
