2nd annual Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar Festival returns to ECA

Mar 20, 2014
Slack key guitarist Walt Keale joins a bevy of talented musicians for the second annual Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar Festival at Edmonds Center for the Arts.

After 32 years of success in Hawaii on the islands of Oahu, Maui, Hawaii and Kauai, the Hawaiian Slack Key Guitar Festival comes back to the Edmonds Center for the Arts on March 23 for a repeat performance.

This year, the festival features Walt Keale, two-time Grammy award nominees LT Smooth, Stephen Inglis, Danny Carvalho, Chris Lau and the dynamic and talented “Taimane.”

Don’t miss the event Acoustic Guitar magazine has dubbed as 1 of 50 “Must-Attend-Events” in America today (January 2014).

Proceeds will benefit the Ki-ho’alu Foundation, a non-profit educational organization whose sole mission is to promote, preserve and perpetuate Hawaii’s 184-year-old indigenous guitar art form known as slack key guitar. Known throughout the world today, slack key guitar began in 1830 on the “Big Island” of Hawaii.

The festival will be held from 4-7 p.m. Sunday, March 23, at the Edmonds Center for the Arts, 410 Fourth Ave. N, Edmonds.

Tickets are available at the box office, by calling 425-275-9595 or online at www.ec4arts.org
