CANCELLED – Led Kaapana & Fran Guidry

7:00 PM
All Ages
Due to circumstances beyond the control of Kuumbwa Jazz, the presenter of this event has cancelled this date. Please contact Club Fox for more information.

Led Kaapana’s mastery of stringed instruments, particularly slack key guitar, and his extraordinary baritone and leo ki`eki`e (falsetto) voices, have made him a musical legend. He has been thrilling audiences for more than 40 years. With easy-going style and kolohe (rascal) charm, he has built a loyal corps of Led Heads from Brussels to his birthplace on the Big Island of Hawaii. Recognition by his peers earned Led 4 Grammy nominations in his own right and 2 wins on slack key compilations.

Northern California-based slack-key player Fran Guidry will perform with Kaapana.  Guidry’s playing complements and supports Kaapana’s. Rather than a conventional rhythm and lead sound, Kaapana and Guidry deliver fingerstyle duets with the two guitars dancing around each other in spontaneous harmony. It’s a sweet and relaxing sound that brings listeners the true feeling of Hawai’ian slack-key guitar, kanikapila style.  The two recorded an album of duets, Kaleponi & Kalapana, last year.
