Specializing in the12-string guitar, "The Hawaiian Boy" Mike Kaawa has been a much-in-demand musician, singer and composer for four decades. Like all four legends, Mike started performing at a young age. After a brief flirtation with rock and roll he committed himself to Hawaiian music, but has always described his style as Hawaiian with attitude. He has shared his robust playing and singing with a host of greats, such as Gabby Pahinui, Moe Keale, Keli`i Taua, Chucky Boy Chock, Roland Cazimero, Na `Oiwi (with Dennis), The Native Hawaiian Band (with Led), The Sons of Hawaii and his own groups.

Thirteen-time Grammy winner Jerry Douglas, considered the world’s leading dobro player, will perform for the first time in Hawai‘i. 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, so it is extremely fitting to have it come home for this incredible event.
