Low key and mellow. Their music personifies Kauai. It will put you in the perfect mood if you have just arrived, or keep you in the perfect mood if you have been on the island awhile. We never miss a concert when we are on the island.

We experienced a beautiful evening of slack key guitar and stories of the islands last Friday by the McMasters. Held in the cozy Hanalei community center, the McMasters made us feel at home as we listened to some of the most gorgeous slack key guitar playing you will ever hear. We enjoyed hearing the history of Hawaiian slack key guitar and of their many years on the islands.

The Mc Masters are a couple that are continuing the Hawaiian Slack Key tradition via these concerts. It combines the beautiful music of Doug and his guitar with the 'talk-story' of Sandy. It is full of history, philosophy and aloha spirit. We loved it.

While the concerts have a tradition with Hanalei, they are also presented in Kapa'a on Saturdays. We attended the one in Kapa'a. Check their website for schedule.

This was an outstanding experience. Laid back & authentic. Soothing & heartwarming
The music was beautiful as Doug is extraordinarily talented and Sandy is an amazing storyteller. Let any tension you may have melt away as you relax and learn about this fascinating part of Hawaiian history. We visited them in Hanalai at the community center about mid-town. Turn towards the mountains just before the soccer field.

We spent a relaxing afternoon at the Hanalei community center listening to some of the sweetest sounds coming from a guitar and ukulele. The McMasters are very accomplished musicians as well as story tellers. They are both so soft-spoken and gentle that you get into a very relaxed state! We thoroughly enjoyed this concert. By the time it was over, the McMasters felt like family. Charming people, charming location, and charming pet rooster!
