#1 Best Live Show - Hawaii Magazine Readers' Choice

#1 Best Live Show - Hawaii Magazine Readers' Choice

One of a kind performance by Hawaiian slack key's most prolific composers, Doug & Sandy McMaster. Enjoy the magic soothing ambience of this fingerstyle, instrumental musical artform created by Hawaiian paniolo (cowboys) in the late 1700's.

The longest running concert of its kind, set in a relaxed, family style building in the hamlet of Hanalei on the north shore of Kauai nestled against the emerald green mountains, rich taro fields, incredible rainbows, with soft tradewinds carrying the sounds of surf and Hawaii's birds through the building.

Experience slack key music in the real old style
while learning about its history, legendary players, and the history, culture, and natural resources of old Hawaii.

Incredible value and one of the most aloha experiences in Hawaii.
Audiences consistently rate this show Excellent - a highlight of our trip!

"My wife and one of our daughters attended your concert on July 2 and had a wonderful time. We tell everyone what a great experience it was to learn of the history of Ki Ho'alu and your stories of the history of the music and the area. ... Your music inspires me to continue to study this music and play it for my grandkids. Your finger work on the fret board is amazing and as with everything that seems so simple is obviously very difficult. Your dedication and talent reflect that in the beautiful music.
I am reminded of the lady who after listening to a famous concert pianist remarked to him that she would give her life to play like he did. His response was "Madam, I did"!
Thanks to you both for being so devoted and passionate about your work and giving your life to the further this music." - Carl Walls
