It's Hawaii in Edmonds.
Slack-key guitarist and five-time Grammy award winner Keoki Kahumoku will be joined by ukulele artist Kalei Gamaio at 7:30 p.m. July 25 at the Edmonds Center for the Arts, 410 Fourth Ave. N.
Kahumoku is a fifth- generation slack-key guitarist who began performing with his father and his uncle in 1990 on the Big Island of Hawaii. He is perhaps best known for his performances at the Westin Maui on Ka'anapali Beach, where he has performed off and on since 1992.
Today, Kahumoku works primarily to preserve Hawaiian musical traditions, teaching and performing throughout Hawaii and in other states.
Gamiao is known for his skill making the ukulele a versatile instrument.
Renditions of Bill Withers' classic “Ain't No Sunshine,” the popular “Office Theme,” and Jon Forman's “Only Hope” showcase his creativity and technique. His originals and innovative arrangements combine jazz, rock and pop have redefined the ukulele.
Tickets are $24, $29 and $34, $15 for students, with a 10 percent discount for seniors and military. Call the ECA box office at 425-275-9595. ECA also offers $5 tickets to teens on the day of the performance, pending availability.
