Keola Beamer is a Hawaiian legend who has stretched the boundaries of slack key guitar music while remaining true to the soul of its deeply Hawaiian roots. Jeff Peterson is a rising star of the next generation of slack key players, who uses the style's open tunings to explore multiple genres with ease and flair. Together, they present an evening of superb guitar that explores the beauty of Hawaiian music as it reflects its native land, the range of Hawai‘i's many cultural influences, and the complexity of technique that has shaped the distinctively resonant sounds of Hawai‘i.
