We went to Borders at Stonestone in San Francisco this afternoon for a delightful concert in the store from these Hawaiian slack key guitar players.
They’re playing in Sebastopol tonight and Palo Alto tomorrow night before heading across the US on a tour which ends in New York in February.
I find slack key guitar so relaxing — close your eyes and you’re in the islands! It’s truly stress-relieving — at least for me!
George was a high school teacher in Hawaii and recently moved to Santa Cruz, CA to get his Masters degree. He’s also quite a writer. Keola is probably the most famous of the bunch. Ozzie is the precision player — his just released CD “To Honor a Queen” is fabulous!
