Hawaiian Cultural & After Dark in the Park Programs
Award-winning kiho‘alu (slack key) guitarist, composer and recording artist, John Keawe warms the Kīlauea Visitor Center auditorium with his music at 7 p.m. (doors open at 6:30 p.m.) Tuesday (Dec 18). His wife Hope provides moving interpretations of his music with her graceful hula.
Winner of the 2009 Nā Hōkū Hanohano Slack Key Album of the Year award for his CD “Hawai‘i Island is My Home,” John and Hope will ring in the holidays with their music, hula and aloha spirit. This program is expected to be well-attended so come early for seating. John’s CDs and DVDs will be available for purchase the evening of the performance. This program featuring John and Hope Keawe’s lovely music and hula was produced by the University of Hawai‘i-Mānoa Outreach College’s Statewide Cultural Extension Program. Part of Hawai‘i Volcanoes’ ongoing After Dark in the Park series.
Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park continues its tradition of sharing Hawaiian culture and After Dark in the Park programs. These programs are free, but park entrance fees may apply.
