The Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar Festival will be playing that Friday night at The Barns at Wolf Trap and the $25 - $30 per ticket event is SOLD OUT. Acoustic Guitar Magazine named The Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar Festival one of 50 must-attend events this year. The Aloha Boys will probably play a couple of songs with one of the artists. The performers are: LT Smooth, Patrick Landeza, Stephen Ingliss, Paul Togioka, Danny Carvalho, and Chris Lau (on bass and audio tech). Milton Lau is the producer. (Stephen Ingliss may not be available on Sunday.)
Slack Guitar: The world’s premium slack key guitar players team up for an impressive performance featuring Hawaii’s native music. In this method of playing, guitar strings are loosened or “slackened”to allow for many distinctive tunings.
Our jam will start at 12:30 pm and go until 1:45 pm.
It will be followed by The Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar Festival.
