Songs of the islands
Kate has a colleague who loves to play the ukulele. One day, he asked a group of guys on the beach if he could sit in with them, and they said yes. Little did he know that he was sitting in with the Michael Jordan of ukulele and slack key guitar, Led Kaapana. A friendship was born, and continues years later.
Because of this connection, last night we went to a concert. Not something fancy in a concert hall, a simple show in an open air tent, put on regularly around here by a local man, this week fortunately featuring Led himself.
Led, by the way, is short for Ledward. His twin brother is named Nedward, No, I’m not clever enough to make that up.
