GEORGE KAHUMOKU JR. lives on Maui with his wife, Nancy, maintaining their 3-acre farm, growing fruit and vegetables, dry-land taro (for his famous home-made poi) and tending goats, chickens, ducks, and miniature horses. With over 25 solo, collaboration, and compilation CDs to his name, George celebrates over 10 years of his famed weekly Slack Key Show on Maui, which has produced 4 Grammy-winning CDs. He founded the Hawaiian Music Institute at University of Hawai?i-Maui College to preserve the legacy of Hawaiian music and to prepare the next generation for careers in music. A renowned storyteller, George collaborated on the book ? A Hawaiian Life ? with long-time friend Paul Konwiser to capture his hilarious, entertaining on-stage stories. This project led to his film biography ? Seeds of Aloha.

A master of the slack key guitar and National Heritage Fellow, 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 and earned him multiple Na H?k? Awards.

Recognized as one of Hawaii?s most versatile musicians, Jeff Peterson is at the heart of the Hawaiian music scene today. His passion for the guitar has allowed him to shine as a solo artist and his deep knowledge of multiple open tunings as well as standard tuning, and his ability to both read music and play by ear, has given him the opportunity to collaborate with a wide variety of solo artists, groups, and orchestras. His focus on Slack Key guitar, classical, and jazz music has allowed him to develop a unique and transcendent voice on the guitar while being deeply rooted in the traditions of his Hawaiian heritage.
