This concert, which is presented by UpWest Arts in association with Hula Anyone, marks Keola Beamer’s first visit to Santa Barbara in nearly ten years.
Slack key guitarist Keola Beamer and his partner, hula dancer Moanalani Beamer, create music and dance that is generating a lot of buzz in the islands. Their music incorporates ancient Hawaiian musical instruments into inventive arrangements of both well-loved Hawaiian music and contemporary songs for something entirely new.
Keola Beamer is a Hawaiian music legend. One of Hawaii’s premier singer-songwriters, arrangers, composers and masters of Hawaiian slack key guitar, his breadth of talent springs from five generations of one of Hawaii’s most illustrious musical families. Texas-based singer-songwriter Willie Nelson is a huge fan, calling Keola’s guitar playing “ the best slack key guitar anywhere.” Keola Beamer’s music was recently featured in the soundtrack for the Oscar-nominated film “The Descendants,” starring George Clooney.
Tickets for the concert are available from the Lobero Box Office at 805-963-0761, or toll free 888-456-2376. Tickets are also available online at www.lobero.com
