In his first feature appearance at Halekulani’s Lewers Lounge, Hawaii born and raised Jeff Peterson will create a rarified, deeply inspired evening, drawing on early roots of jazz in Hawaii. His focus on slack key guitar, classical, and jazz music has allowed him to develop a unique and transcendent voice on the guitar while being deeply rooted in the traditions of his local heritage. He has contributed to two Grammy Award-winning recordings and has been honored with eleven Na Hoku Hanohano Awards in Hawaii, two Hoku Awards in 2016 for Slack Key Album of the Year and instrumental song of the year, and the 2018 Na Hōkū Hanohano Instrumental Album of the Year. Born on the Island of Maui, Jeff Peterson grew up on the slopes of Haleakala where he was introduced to the rich heritage of Hawaiian music by his father, a paniolo, or ‘Hawaiian cowboy,’ on the Haleakala Ranch.
