From the Honolulu Star-Advertiser: “Hawaii slack key guitar and ukulele musician Ledward Kaapana was named as a 2011 National Heritage Fellowship recipient, the nation’s highest honor in folk and traditional arts… Kaapana, who grew up in Kalapana on the Big Island but now lives in Kaneohe, was recognized for entertaining audiences for more than 40 years. He learned music from his mother, Mama Tina Kaapana and an uncle, Fred Punahoa.” Now that the Grammy’s have dropped the Hawaiian Music category, it’s nice to know that some people still appreciate this type of music.
