Celtic Music-Sessions Tunes class at the SRJC begins
6:30 PM-8:00 PM
189 Forsyth Hall, Santa Rosa Campus
Learn Celtic tunes by ear and experience the magic of playing with a group of mixed instruments. If you can play simple melodies on your instrument (fiddle, accordion, mandolin, whistle, flute harp, etc.), you can begin to create a repertoire of jigs, reels, hornpipes, and waltzes. Ability to read music NOT required. We will listen and play--so bring your instruments (and a recording device). Soon you'll be prepared to join a Celtic music session.

Master slack key guitarist George Kahumoku Jr., known as “Hawai‘i’s Renaissance Man,” is also a multiple Na Hoku Hanohano (Hawaiian Grammy) Award-winner. He is also a vocalist, storyteller, songwriter and author, world-traveling performer, as well as a high school and college teacher, artist and sculptor, farmer, and chef of traditional Hawaiian cuisin). His music features the delightful experience of ki-ho‘alu (slack key guitar)—the distinctly Hawaiian style of open tunings.
Kahumoku will be joined by Uncle Richard Ho‘opi‘i, a National Heritage Fellow renowned for traditional Hawaiian falsetto singing and ‘ukulele, and by his son Keoki Kahumoku. Both are also featured on the Grammy-winning CDs. One of the great traditions in Hawaiian Slack Key guitar—indeed in all Hawaiian culture—is the passing on of music and practices from one generation to the next. This concert offers you the rare opportunity to experience the warm bond of father and son, sharing a slack key genealogy even as each makes ki-ho‘alu (slack key) styling’s his own.
