Slow life down for a moment with the tranquil sounds of slack key guitar—the distinctly Hawaiian finger-style genre known as kī hō’alu in the islands. ELLNORA alum and Grammy Award winner Jeff Peterson returns with his versatile, jazz-influenced sound in an imaginative program that unites the beauty of Peterson’s slack key with the Hawaiian steel guitar of Greg Sardinha and Tsun-Hui Hung’s innovative interpretations on the two-stringed Chinese erhu.
