Keola Beamer & Jeff Peterson, with Moanalani Beamer  – Touring in 2018-19

Keola Beamer is a Hawaiian legend who has stretched the boundaries of slack key guitar music while remaining true to the soul of its deeply Hawaiian roots. Says Willie Nelson, “There’s no better slack key player than Beamer.” Jeff Peterson is a star of the next generation, his refined style recently awarded by the Native Arts & Cultures Foundation.

Together, they present an evening of superb guitar, accompanied by Beamer’s rich and soulful vocals, as they explore the beauty of Hawaiian music as it reflects its native land and the range of Hawai‘i’s many cultural influences. Their styles feature the complexity of technique that has shaped the distinctively resonant sounds of Hawaiian slack key guitar or ki-ho‘alu, with playing that encompasses classical and jazz guitar as well. They are joined by lovely hula dancer Moanalani Beamer, whose style reflects the long hula lineage of the Beamer family.
