at the 1867 Sanctuary at Ewing

Mele'uhane - Father & Son Duo, Keikilani and Leo Lindsey perform for an intimate audience a song from their latest release, The Garden. Hanalei, written by Michael Ruff, celebrates a beautiful bay in Kaua'i and a spirit set free.

Preservation New Jersey is pleased to present an evening of Hawaiian music by award winning performers, featuring the father-son duo Mele`uhane touring from the Big Island of Hawaii together with special guest, Ewing's own Bill Wynne in the wonderful acoustics of the 1867 Sanctuary at Ewing!

Bill Wynne met Mele `uhane when he was fundraising for his internet radio station. He reached out to musicians across the islands for their support. Keikilani and Leo were strangers to me, but we shared our music with each other, and we became fast friends and fans of each other. We vowed to put together a joint performance someday. And it is more than a little ironic that this summit of musicians who perform Hawaiian music is occurring for the first time in Ewing, NJ.

Keikilani LindseyKeikilani Lindsey (Lead Vocals/Guitar/Composition) is the issue of more than 5 generations of Hawaiian storytellers and paniolo. An accomplished vocalist and performer, Keikilani cut his teeth as a student of the hula and has emerged today, as one of Hawaii's new generation of storytellers. Taking up the mantle of his Great-Aunt Helen, Keikilani Lindsey endeavors to craft beauty in every extreme, rendering a voice to each emotion.

Leokani LindseyLeokani Lindsey, or LEO for short, (Guitars/Vocals/Percussion) is the eldest son of Keikilani and an innovative artist in his own right. Having spent his early childhood mastering rhythm and percussion, Leo is now head-over-heels in love with his guitars. Leo will tell you that he will always be a student of the art of Hawaiian Slack Key guitar. And his humility serves him well, as his innovative insights and fantastic compositions, are truly a gift from above and continue to inspire many. Serving as Mele'uhane's lead guitarist and harmony songbird, Leo is earning every stripe rounding out this Father-Son Big Island duo.

Bill WynneFor years before he was born in Philadelphia, Bill Wynne's mother and father led a music and dance troupe on the East Coast which performed solely Hawaiian music and hula. He first stepped on stage with an `ukulele before he was three years old. By his teens his obsession became slack key guitar. By his twenties, he was focused on the steel guitar. But his first love has always been the Hawaiian song – the beauty of the Hawaiian language and the way the haku mele (or Hawaiian composer) weaves together words like so many flowers into a precious lei. He learned to sing more than a thousand Hawaiian songs, and specialized in the art of Hawaiian falsetto singing – eventually taking first prize in both singing and Hawaiian language at the 2005 Aloha Festivals Falsetto Contest on O`ahu.

Today, Bill, a resident of Ewing, NJ, performs Hawaiian music up and down the East Coast and occasionally by invitation in Hawai`i. In his spare time, he is the creative force behind Ho`olohe Hou Radio (http://hoolohehou.com), a 24/7 Internet radio station featuring the 100-year history of Hawaiian music and the entertainment industry in Hawai`i.
