Brother Noland to play free Hawaiian Music Series concert
LAHAINA – Brother Noland, Na Hoku Hanohano Award-winning performing artist from Oahu, will be the featured entertainer at this month’s first Hawaiian Music Series concert of 2019.
Now in its 11th year, the free event will be held on Thursday evening, Jan. 31, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on the front lawn of the historic Baldwin Home in Lahaina at the corner of Front and Dickenson streets.
Born and raised in the islands but well-traveled, Brother Noland is a legacy Hawaiian artist who has deeply influenced contemporary Hawaiian music with timeless hits such as “Coconut Girl” and “Big Ship.”
As an impactful player in the music scene and one of Hawaii’s most respected artists, he was honored in 2014 by the State of Hawaii with a Lifetime Achievement in Music Award.
But despite all the accolades, Brother Noland has never forgotten his roots and the community.
Through his philanthropy, he helps at-risk youth define their choices and make a quality connection to the community.
His Ho’ea Initiative is dedicated to teaching children how to live off the ‘aina (land) and the ocean.
Limited seating is provided on the lawn; blankets, mats and low beach chairs are welcome.
The ongoing Hawaiian Music Series is sponsored by the Hawaii Tourism Authority and the County of Maui Office of Economic Development with support from KPOA 93.5 FM.
