Aloha, gang!

I’m excited to tell you all about an upcoming event, a Weekend of Song, that I’m participating in here in NYC.

The Folk Music Society of New York, Inc. is presenting a jam-packed mini-festival of music and lectures this coming weekend, March 6-8th.  Fantastically talented musicians representing diverse styles of folk music traditions.  Doesn’t that sound awesome? Please click HERE for all of the details.

I’ll be giving a short talk on Saturday afternoon (from 415p-520p) about the evolution of a Hawaiian song, tracing the path of a Molokai song from its traditional oli (chant) to its more contemporary form, set to a gospel tune in the late 1800s.

And then on Saturday evening, I’ll be joined Kristabelle (on steel guitar) and Eleanor (our beautiful hula dancer) as we present a set of traditional (and self-penned) songs from/about Molokai. The concert is scheduled to begin at 730p and we’re sharing the evening with some great musicians!

It’s an honor to share Hawaiian music and culture here in New York City.  And it’s always fun to be a part of a Folk Music Society of New York event.

If you’re in the NYC-area this weekend, I’d love to see you there!

Much Aloha


*Note: While I’ll only be speaking/singing on Saturday, March 7th, the entire weekend looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun.  Please be sure to check out the schedule to see a list of speakers, performers and workshops.
