Slack Key Generations: George Kahumoku Jr. and Keoki Kahumoku

with Ernie Kanoa and friends
Friday, February 24, 2012 - 8:00pm

Seated show

A long-time seasonal favorite at The Cedar, this winter's slack key guitar show features the father and son duo of George Kahumoku Jr. and Keoki Kahumoku. Lifelong proponents of Hawaiian music and culture, the pair have an engaging, relaxed manner guaranteed to bring classic Hawaiian warmth to even the chilliest February evening in MInnesota.

As one of the longstanding keepers of Hawaiian culture and music in MInnesota, it is a great pleasure to announce that Ernie Kanoa and friends will be performing in the lobby before the show.
