About the Performance:
Versatile guitarist Jeff Peterson is at the heart of the Hawaiian music scene today. Specializing in slack key, classical, and jazz, he has contributed to two Grammy Award-winning recordings and has been honored with seven Na Hōkū Hanohano Awards.
Born on Maui, Jeff grew up on the slopes of Haleakalā where he was introduced to the rich heritage of Hawaiian music by his father, a paniolo, on Haleakalā Ranch. His virtuosity on the guitar and ‘ukulele has taken him across the U.S. and abroad. His latest album, Wahi Pana, was released last December as a full length film DVD and sountrack CD. This show is a must for fans of slack key guitar.
