The Fifth Annual Maui Hawaiian Steel Guitar Festival was an overwhelming success! Mahalo to the event's organizers: Bryant Neal from Arts Education for Children Group, Tom Fairbanks from the Ka'anapali Beach Hotel, and Alan Akaka and Addison Ching from Ke Kula Mele Hawaii School of Hawaiian Music. Mahalo also to our corporate supporters and sponsors, steel guitarists, musicians, vocalists and dancers, and the hard-working volunteers who all helped make this event a memorable one!
Some pictures from the festival are already posted on the Festival's Facebook fan page in the album "2013 Maui Hawaiian Steel Guitar Festival." Pictures and video of the festival will be posted on this website in the coming days and weeks. If you attended the festival, please visit often to relive the festival performances you experienced! And, for those who were not able to attend this year, you can get an idea of what you missed!
The 6th Annual Maui Steel Guitar Festival will be held on April 11-13, 2014, at the Ka'anapali Beach Hotel. Please mark these dates on your calendar and make plans to attend. Next year's festival promises to be bigger and better than this year's event and will once again be free and open to the public!
