Bill Wynne, A Taste of Hawaii

November 17, 2018 @ 8:00 pm

Preservation New Jersey is pleased to welcome guitarist and vocalist Bill Wynne back to the 1867 Sanctuary!

For 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.
