WHO/WHAT: “Island Breeze,” an all-star trio blending
Hawaiian and Japanese instruments in a creatively inspiring and exciting style, will perform in concert for one night only.
The trio consists of Jeff Peterson (Hawaiian slack key guitar), Riley Lee (shakuhachi) and Kenny Endo (taiko), each a highly regarded master of his own instrument. In 2012, the three artists collaborated for a concert at the University of Hawai‘i. This collaboration eventually resulted in a CD recording in 2014 and a Na Hoku Hanohano nomination in 2015 for Best Instrumental Album of the Year and Best Instrumental Song of the Year.
WHEN/WHERE: Saturday, Aug. 19, at 7 p.m. at Shingon Shu Hawaii Temple, 915 Sheridan St. Limited parking in the temple grounds — street parking also available.
