About the Performance:

Two guitar legends—one a slack-key star, the other a king of country lap steel—join forces for an unforgettable night of music. Ledward Kaapana and Jerry Douglas met in 1990 when both were part of the Masters of Steel String Guitar tour organized by the National Council for the Traditional Arts. They toured together for three years. Then in 1998, Kaapana went to Nashville to record his album Waltz of the Wind with Douglas part of the all-star lineup.

But the two have not played together in years, and this concert promises to be an explosive reunion. Both men like to cut loose, yet are grounded in tradition.

Undisputed ki ho‘alu master Led Kaapana has won two Grammy awards as part of slack key compilations, and Jerry Douglas is a 13-time Grammy winner and member of Alison Krauss and Union Station.
