Award winning concert artists Doug & Sandy McMaster have 10 CDs to perpetuate the knowledge and experience of the endangered artform of traditional Hawaiian slack key guitar and ukulele. Guided by the kupuna (elders), they have dedicated their lives to continuing the family tradition of slack key music. Typical comments: "Awesome music & talent!" - Kathy "Soothing to the soul and spirit." - David & Dianne "To really feel Hawaii, you must hear slack key. It embodies Aloha!" - Bill The community center is easy to find. In Hanalei, just a block past the shopping center, turn towards the mountains at Malolo Rd. A small Hanalei Community Center sign is on the edge of Waioli Park soccer fields. Go twenty yards & turn left into the graveled parking area. The concert is in the brown building - Pohai Aloha (Circle of Aloha). Tickets and more information can be found at www.McMasterSlackKey.com/liveshows.html or call (808) 826-1469.
