Hawaiian slack-key guitar legend Led Kaapana will bring the Aloha spirit to The Old Steeple on Friday, October 21st! Get tickets today before this incredible show sells out!
A master of the slack key guitar, Led Kaapana has been one of Hawaii's most influential musicians for four decades. His mastery of stringed instruments, his exceptional picking style on slack key guitar and ukulele, and his extraordinary baritone to leo ki`eki`e (falsetto) vocal range, have made him a musical legend. With easy-going style and kolohe (rascal) charm, he has built a loyal corps of Led Heads from Brussels to his birthplace on the Big Island of Hawaii.
In 2011, he was honored with an NEA National Heritage Fellowship for his artistic excellence and his contributions to our nation's traditional arts heritage. Recognition by his peers earned Led four Grammy nominations in his own right and three Grammy wins on slack key compilations. He has won multiple N Hk Hanohano (Hawaiis Grammy) awards, including Favorite Entertainer of the Year in 2009.
Opening the show will be Da Ukulele Boyz. As co-hosts of George Kahumoku Jrs Slack Key Show©, cousins Garrett Probst and Peter deAquino — Da Ukulele Boyz — are spirited and talented, with terrific duet instrumentals, fun vocals and relaxed stage banter. Peter also performs mens hula. They have performed frequently with Led Kaapana, a regular guest on the show. They share good humor, stories of the local Hawaiian lifestyle, and the down-home spirit of the islands.
