Keola Beamer & Henry Kapono are two legends of Hawaiian music. Each became an icon in the 1970s, at the creative forefront as Hawaiian music reinvented itself. They have continued to lead the way for over four decades.

Keola Beamer's contributions to slack key guitar during the 1970s began to spark public interest in kī-hō‘alu, launching a statewide revival of the tradition, and his 1978 release, Honolulu City Lights, is the largest selling recording in the history of Hawaiian music. Today he is one of Hawai‘i's premier singer-songwriters, arrangers, composers and masters of the Hawaiian slack key guitar.

Henry Kapono, with Cecilio Rodriguez, became the wildly popular phenomenon Cecilio & Kapono (aka C&K). They helped forge the sound of '70s Hawaiian music, with laid-back contemporary rock that voiced the feelings of an entire generation in Hawai‘i. Today as a solo artist, Henry is a Grammy-nominated and award-winning singer and songwriter.

Despite their common history, Keola & Henry first performed together in 2014, when Henry invited Keola & Moana Beamer to take part in Back in the Day. This wildly successful show featured Hawai‘i's musical greats who changed Hawaiian music, starting in the «Hawaiian Renaissance» of the 1970s—the seminal movement in Hawai‘i's cultural history that brought language, music, hula, art, and all aspects of Hawaiian culture back to their central place in the life of the Islands.

Keola & Henry will each perform a set, and then come together onstage to celebrate their original songs that have become beloved classics of contemporary Hawaiian music.
