A weekend of Hawaiian culture in CHICAGO!

Wednesday, August 8, 2012

Chicago, Halau i Ka Pono, June Tanoue, Oak Park, Accidental Hawaiian Crooner, Jason Poole

Aloha,  gang!

I know… I know I just UNpacked from my trips to Molokai and Pittsburgh. But…

I’m packing up the suitcase, again.


I’m heading to Chicago for a weekend of Hawaiian cultural activities!

Yup! Hawaiʻi Island-born kumu hula, June Kaililani Tanoue has a hālau hula (hula school) out in Oak Park–Hālau i Ka Pono!  And they’ve invited me to join them for a jam-packed weekend of hula classes, an ipu making/decorating workshop and a performance at Chicago’s Millennium Park!

And I’ll be giving a talk-story/performance on Saturday night!  My first talk-story since the most recent Molokai trip.  I’m excited to share stories and songs–and I think the hālau is going to grace the evening with some hula, too!

So… are you coming?

If you’re in the Chicago area, I hope to see you at any/all of the weekend’s events!  

Here’s a link with all of the information to help get you registered, etc:

Now… where did I put my ‘ukulele tuner?

A hui hou!

    Oh Crooner,
    I’m going to be in Chicago in late September. How I wish we could have synchronized our travelogues!
    Peace and joy in your travels.

    @ NoHo: Nuts! I wish we were going to be there at the same time. Someday we’ll manage to get our travelogues in synch…
