Mitch Kepa to play free concert

By Staff | Feb 28, 2019

Whether playing classic Hawaiian slack key or more contemporary acoustic guitar, Mitch Kepa always strives for innovation and creativity in his music.

LAHAINA – Mitch Kepa is performing a free concert in Lahaina! Come enjoy this month’s Hawaiian Music Series, presented by Lahaina Restoration Foundation, on Thursday, Feb. 28, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on lawn of the historic Baldwin Home Museum at the corner of Dickenson and Front streets. Limited seating is provided on the lawn; blankets, mats and low beach chairs are welcome.

Born and raised in Hawaii, Kepa knew music was going to be a big part of his life when he saw a TV commercial featuring the late Gabby Pahinui playing beautiful Hawaiian slack key guitar.

“The rest was history for me. Hawaiian music started my journey as an artist,” he said.

Kepa has been performing for more than 30 years, concentrating on vocals first and guitar second.

Now in its 11th year, the Hawaiian Music Series is sponsored by the Hawaii Tourism Authority and the County of Maui Office of Economic Development.
