Kī Hō`alu, translating literally from the Hawaiian as “loosen the key,” indicating the tuning in slack key guitar technique, is a musical tradition dating back to 19th century paniolo who played around the campfire after completing a day of ranch work.

Slack key has become known as one of the world’s great acoustic guitar methods, especially since the Grammy Awards recognized Hawaiian music as a category all its own.

An abundance of relaxed lawn seating gives the event an informal, local-style atmosphere, making it easy to lounge all afternoon. Festival-goers are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs, blankets, or lauhala mats and relax on the grassy lawn to fully enjoy the laid-back music by famed guitar players.

This is a family-friendly event: All generations can enjoy the slack key guitar tradition, with both new music and classic favorites. Island crafters and merchants will be on site with displays of local arts & crafts for purchase, and food trucks will serve a variety of tasty lunch and dessert options.
