Upcoming Event, Jeff Peterson in Makawao

Makawao is in for a treat!

The talented Jeff Peterson, recognized as one of Hawaii's most versatile musicians, will gift our Makawao community with an informal performance June 14, 2-4 p.m..

We have an area in the  Makawao History Museum  dedicated to a rotating display.  The present exhibit  is focused on the influence of traditional Hawaiian music on Upcountry Maui.
 From the old mele to more contemporary Upcountry tunes, this musical journey highlights slack key and some of Makawao's notable musicians.
The late Eddie Wilson, a well loved Paniolo from Makawao, is featured in the exhibit as well. His daughter, Kellee Wilson will be dancing hula for our Kanikapila Sunday afternoon.

In the Hawaiian language, "kani"means sound, and "pila" refers to any stringed instrument.

Jeff's "Maui on My Mind"is a delightful and relaxing slack key collection of tunes. One of my favorites for sure. 

The volunteers of Makawao History Museum will provide lemonade and home made deserts for all.

Please join us for a lovely afternoon . This event is free to the public.
