These three Maui musicians are known for bringing unique folk style, rooted in early 19th century Hawaiian paniolo culture, to their 21st century audiences. On guitar and vocals for the trio is four-time Grammy-winner George Kahumoku Jr., also known as Hawaii's Renaissance Man. On bass, guitar and vocals is the award-winning Nathan Aweau. Born into a musical family, Aweau’s young life was filled with piano lessons, practicing the guitar and ukulele and later the saxophone, bass and percussion. Slack key guitarist and vocalists David “Kawika” Kahiapo was introduced to music in O’ahu, listening to his father spend hours practicing the guitar in their garage. Together, they’ll surely bring a blast of sun to a wintry Spokane February.
