Are you a connoisseur of real Hawaii-style kiho‘alu (slack key) guitar? Want to catch some of Hawaii’s finest kiho‘alu artists playing live?
We’ve got a pair of best-seat-in-the-house tickets for one of the top annual gatherings of Hawaiian slack key guitarists outside of the Islands.
And they could be yours!
HAWAII Magazine is giving away a VIP ticket package to the third annual Southern California Slack Key Festival, happening on Jan. 24, 2010, at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center in Redondo Beach, Calif.
The fest’s 2010 edition is bringing together a terrific line-up of Grammy-nominated and Na Hoku Hanohano award-winning ki ho‘alu artists, including Cyril Pahinui and the Pahinui Hawaiian Band (pictured above), Ledward Kaapana, Jeff Peterson, Makana, Jim “Kimo” West and John Cruz. Performances by California hula halau (hula groups) will also be part of the fest's entertainment.
The winner of HAWAII Magazine’s Southern California Slack Key Festival giveaway will receive:
• 2 orchestra seats for the 2010 Southern California Slack Key Festival on Jan. 24, 2010, in Redondo Beach, Calif.
• 2 passes to the festival’s VIP reception on Jan. 23, 2010, at the new Trader Vic’s at L.A. Live, in Downtown Los Angeles.
Just click here to enter the giveaway. No purchase is necessary to win. Entry deadline is Jan. 10, 2010.
Not our VIP package winner come Jan. 11? If you’re a fan of Hawaiian slack key guitar and have never experienced the Grammy-winning music genre performed live, the fest is still a great deal—three solid hours of sets by some of the best Hawaii ki ho‘alu artists, for $35 and $45 a ticket.
