McCoy Studio Theater
Friday, September 13, 2019 – 7:30 PMIn this concert series, two artists talk-story, play music, and have fun! Each concert will feature Henry Kapono and a different guest artist in an intimate format that offers the audience a rare opportunity to get up-close and personal.
The artists will share music and stories from their careers and answer questions, giving the audience an up-close-and-personal seat at the jam session. This concert features Blayne Asing.
Henry Kapono is a performer who has it all – vocalist, guitarist, songwriter, composer, thrilling performer, audience favorite—and multiple honors and awards, including a Grammy nomination. He has taken home numerous Nā Hōkū Hanohano Awards, including Male Vocalist of the Year, Song of the Year, Single of the Year, and Album & Rock Album of the Year.
Born and raised on the island of O’ahu, singer/songwriter Blayne Asing began playing ʻukulele at age eight. Although he grew up loving the music of popular Hawai’i artists, his own music is heavily influenced by country and folk music artists such as James Taylor and Jackson Browne. Asing had no formal music training. He taught himself how to play by watching YouTube videos and credits his ability to play with having a natural ear for learning. In addition to his expertise in playing a variety of instruments, Asing is a prolific songwriter. His original songs range from country/folk to Hawaiian and island music, but he also loves performing the music of his favorite Hawaiian legends. He received the 2016 Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award for “Most Promising Artist.”
