For Amy Hanaiali'i fans - she's here Saturday!

Aloha from Kaua'i!

Just a note for fans of wonderful singer Amy Hanaiali'i - on Saturday she will be signing autographs at Kaua'i Costco at 12:00 then Kaua'i Borders at 3:00 p.m.

She has a wonderful new CD and it is an awesome chance to meet her and get her autograph!

Malama Pono,

I notice they're really promoting her new album at the music stand outside of Princeville foodland. I'll make it a point to pick it up tomorrow - I haven't bought a Hawaiian music CD yet this summer.

Thanks for the tip.

WOW, just listened to a fantastic cover by Amy of the CCR song "Have You Ever Seen the Rain" - great stuff.

It's on her MySpace page in MP3 format

It's actually off her 2008 album "Aumakua"

Aloha from Kaua'i!

Her new CD is called "Friends and Family of Hawai'i" - and is much in the same vein stylistically as last year's "Aumakua" IMO - I've already purchased it and I especially love the song "Pa Aneahe" with Keali'i Keichel - so nahenahe!!

Each song is a duet with a particular artist - everyone from Robert Cazimero, Fiji, Henry Kapono, etc, etc. - even Willie Nelson (???).

Malama Pono,

Janet

We heard her in Nor CA a few years ago. She had just changed managers, and had dropped much of her Hawaiian emphasis ... for 1940s and other Mainland-mellow stuff. Very disappointing. Jeff Peterson was traveling with her and TOTALLY stole the show. I'm interested in hearing her new album if she has returned to her root. I love her "older" CDs.

Thank you so much for the info "Kologirl"! Maybe someone local could show up, take some pictures and post us a link. Wow, how exciting!

I must agree with BLBL as to getting back to "roots". She has a wonderful voice too, but we need to hear the "language of Hawaii".

Last CD I bought (when I was in Maui) was her lovely Christmas album. See link for review:

The first time I heard her sing Haleiwa Hula I thought she was the next Genoa Keawe with her falsetto voice.

Both CDs are also available on amazon.com. I ordered Amy's new one ... and found a new Ho'okena CD as well. Can't wait to hear it!

FYI - Hawaiian music lovers: I may have mentioned this before, but the selection of Hawaiian music at the new Barnes & Noble across from the Cannery in Lahaina is amazing. Amazing. And (as you may know) I can be tough to please!

CAnative,

Amy Hanaiali'i might not come this way, but if you like Hawaiian music, the Slack Key Guitar Festival at the Redondo Performing Arts Center (used to be Aviation High School) has a great lineup starting. Ledward Kapana, Makana, and probably Cyril Pahinui will be there. They do a great job putting that show on.
