Despite their common history, the two living legends only performed together for the first time in 2014, when Henry Kapono invited Keola and Moanalani Beamer to be part of his concert, Back in the Day. This wildly successful show featured Hawaii’s musical greats who shaped Hawaiian music from the 1970s on, part of the “Hawaiian Renaissance”—the seminal movement in Hawaii’s cultural history that brought language, music, hula, art, and all aspects of Hawaiian culture back to their central place in the life of the Islands.

Keola Beamer’s contributions to slack-key guitar during the 1970s began to spark public interest in kī-hō’alu (literally, “loosen the key,” referring to the Hawaiian playing style in which standard guitar tuning is altered by slackening the strings). This launched a statewide revival of the tradition, and his 1978 release, Honolulu City Lights, is the largest-selling recording in the history of Hawaiian music. Today, he is one of Hawaii’s premier singer-songwriters, arrangers, composers, and masters of the Hawaiian slack-key guitar.

Henry Kapono and Cecilio Rodriguez joined together to become the wildly popular phenomenon Cecilio & Kapono (aka C&K). They helped forge the sound of 1970s Hawaiian music, with laid-back contemporary rock that voiced the feelings of an entire generation in Hawaii. Today, as a solo artist, Kapono is a Grammy-nominated and award-winning singer and songwriter.

Keola Beamer and Henry Kapono will each perform a set, and then come together onstage to celebrate their original songs that have become beloved classics of contemporary Hawaiian music.
