The Kahilu Theatre will present Grammy and multiple Nā Hōkū Award-winning slack-key guitarist John Keawe on Friday, April 2, 2021, at 7:00 p.m. The livestream concert will be followed by a live chat with Keawe. Ticket info below.
Keawe is a Big Island-born Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award-winning musician and known throughout Hawaii for his beautiful island music infused with the spirit of Aloha. Keawe grew up listening to rock music and after a four-year tour in the Navy, he returned to Hawaii and was drawn to the sound of Hawaiian slack-key. The self-taught guitarist developed his own distinct style and has recorded several albums, bringing Hawaiian slack-key into the homes of people from around the world.
Joining John for this performance will be his wife, Hope Keawe. Hope was born and raised in North Kohala and comes from a family of 8 children, all of whom reside in Hawai’i. Hope met John upon his return from the Navy and they were married a year later. Hope is known for her elegant hula and has become an integral part of John’s performances by providing beautiful interpretations of his original compositions as well as traditional Hawaiian songs.
