I will be performing at the inaugural first Idaho Island Festival in a local park (Meridian, ID). There will be plenty of other local groups and hula dancers too throughout the day. After my set with native Hawaiian and kupuna Uncle Archie, I will teach a beginning ukulele workshop and then an intro to slack-key guitar workshop. www.idahoislandfestival.com

Thanks guys. This is a way to reconnect with the local Hawaiian community again. Some passing of kupuna and other disruptions had severed the connections lately, so I'm glad to be plugging back in.

Gonna be HOT that day (triple digits here for the foreseeable future) so I will be using a carbon fiber guitar and my composite Blackbird ukulele. No worries about temp or humidity that way.

Earl! Wear a hat (a cool and kewl one), play in the shade. Hydrate. Build the network!

Shade won't be an option. The stage is a concrete amphitheater in the park facing due west. But we play at 12:30 so it won't be the full heat of the day yet and the sun will be overhead. There will be tents for the workshops so they will be shaded. I pity the stage acts for the late afternoon and evening -- it will be brutal for them, looking straight into the sun after the stage has been baking for hours.
