Kaua‘i Steel Guitar Festival Updates

Kaua‘i Festival Program Updates

February 17, 2020 • Addison ChingFestivals and Conventions

Program updates for the 2020 Kaua‘i Steel Guitar Festival have been announced by festival producer HIMELE.

The Friday Open Stage program will begin at 11:00 A.M. instead of 11:30 as previously announced. The program will begin earlier to accommodate an additional performer.

Previously-announced featured steel guitarist Ed Punua has withdrawn from this year's festival due to a pressing workload. Ed is a Certified Public Accountant and this year's tax season is placing high demands on his available time.

Also withdrawing from this year's ho‘olaule‘a is veteran steel guitarist Bobby Ingano. Bobby is not able to make this year's festival due to a scheduling mixup. As many of you are aware, Bobby is now spending a lot of his time touring with American blues musician Taj Mahal.

Substituting for Bobby will be Polynesian Cultural Center steel guitarist Steve Cheney. Steve has performed at many Oahu-based steel guitar festivals and this will be Steve's first visit to Kaua‘i.

The 2020 Kauai Steel Guitar Festival will be held at the newly-renovated Sheraton Kaua'i Coconut Beach Resort on February 28-29. See the website for program information and event schedule.
