Greats of Hawaiian music will come together in this one-of-a-kind concert celebrating the 50th anniversary of the nonprofit National Tropical Botanical Garden.

HAWAIIAN LEGENDS
Performances by Ledward Kaapana, Mike Kaawa, and Nathan Aweau. The Hawaiian Legends won the 2013 Nā Hōkū Hanahano award for Live Concert dvd. Each artist is also recognized individually for their mastery of island music.
Ledward has received numerous awards, including the NEA Heritage Fellowship, America's highest recognition for a traditional artist. Mike, known as “The Hawaiian Boy”, is a much-in-demand musician, singer, and composer, specializing in the 12-string guitar. Both an accomplished vocalist and composer, Nathan is the only male artist to have won the Nā Hōkū Hanohano award for Male Vocalist of the Year three times and has also been honored for composing the Hawaiian Song of the Year.

SPECIAL GUEST PERFORMANCE BY JERRY DOUGLAS
Jerry Douglas is a 13-time Grammy winner who is considered the world's leading dobro player. The dobro is a resonator guitar that is heard primarily in bluegrass music today but is derived from the Hawaiian lap steel guitar of the 1920s. Don't miss Jerry's first performance on Kaua‘i.

THE NATHAN AWEAU, JEFF PETERSON, AND BENNY CHONG TRIO
Jeff is recognized as one of Hawai`i’s most versatile guitarists, having provided the music for the blockbuster movie “The Descendants”. Benny is widely hailed by musicians as the world’s leading jazz ukulele master, known for his innovative techniques. The two will be joined by Hawaiian Legend Nathan Aweau.

With the popular Kaua‘i group THE HANALEI BAY TRIO
Ken Emerson, Pancho Graham, and Kirby Keough

The Hanalei Bay Trio's style reflects the Hawaiian guitar's grassroots origins of a century ago, completing a cultural circle from the first vaquero guitarists through jazz steel virtuoso Sol Hoopii and into new unexplored territories.

Also performing: The children's choir of Ke Kula Ni‘ihau O Kekaha

[Note: Regrettably Hawaiian Legend Dennis Kamakahi will not be appearing due to health concerns. We wish Dennis all the very best.]

Set in the beautiful open-air setting of National Tropical Botanical Garden's Southshore Visitors Center in Po`ipū on the island of Kaua`i, the concert is the kickoff celebration of NTBG's 50th anniversary. NTBG was chartered by the United States Congress in 1964 as a nonprofit institution to serve the great public need of saving tropical plants from extinction.
