George Kahumoku Jr. & Masters of Hawaiian Music

“Kahumoku was an affable raconteur, mixing his dialogue with passionate renderings of material…” 
LA Times

“…The vocals and slack-key wizardry of George Kahumoku … is as cleansing as a Sunday drive through God’s country.” — The Honolulu Advertiser

“… a master with the acoustic guitar. His music is played from his heart and soul through the very tips of his fingers. www.amzmusiczine.com

Four-time Grammy-winner, master slack key guitarist George Kahumoku Jr., known as “Hawai‘i’s Renaissance Man”, is also a multiple Na Hōkū Hanohano (Hawaiian Grammy) Award winner, most recently for Best Christmas CD in 2017.

He is also a vocalist, storyteller, songwriter & author, world-traveling performer, as well as a teacher, –he founded the Hawaiian Music Institute at University of Hawai’i-Maui College –artist and sculptor, farmer, and chef (his farm to table). He is the producer and star of the long-running, weekly Slack Key Show® on Maui, which features the best of Hawaiian slack key and other leading music artists, now in its second decade.

George tours solo or with the finest artists from his renowned Slack Key Show®, to share the delightful experience of kī-hō‘alu (slack key guitar) – the distinctly Hawaiian style of open tunings. Shows feature good music and good humor, Hawaiian cultural knowledge, and the down-home spirit of the islands.

His education programs and guitar workshops are superb. Curriculum guide available.
