There are no longer any performances available for this show.
This is a FREE Live @ the MACC streamed event.In this special import from O‘ahu, the MACC brings in noted slack key artist Jeff Peterson, accompanied by Greg Sardinha and Tsun-Hui Hung, a trio collectively known as Across the Sea.
Jeff Peterson (right) is unique among ki hō‘alu guitarists -- in addition to his mastery of slack key techniques, he has also had extensive formal training in the traditions of European and American classical and jazz guitar. Greg Sardinha (left) is one of the foremost Hawaiian steel guitarists of his generation and has contributed to this Hawaiian art form for more than three decades as a musician, songwriter, arranger, and record producer. Taiwan-born Tsun-Hui Hung (center) is internationally recognized as one of the most innovative players of the erhu, a two-stringed Chinese instrument. Their Across the Sea CD was the first recording where the steel guitar, Hawaiian slack key guitar, and `ukulele were accompanied by the Chinese erhu.
