The event will be available at the Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar Festival pages on YouTube or Facebook.

“Kī Hō’alu” – translating literally from the Hawaiian as “loosen the key,” indicating the tuning in slack key guitar technique – is a musical tradition dating back to 19th century paniolo who played around the campfire after completing a day of ranch work.

Slack key has become known as one of the world’s great acoustic guitar methods, especially since the Grammy Awards at one time recognized Hawaiian music as a category all its own.
