The duo Kailua Moon deliver their fresh take on traditional and contemporary Hawaiian music, as well as on genres from folk to pop in the Atherton Studio on August 25. HPR welcomes the return of Danny Carvalho, who makes up half of this new band. His slack key virtuosity is familiar to public radio audiences having performed previously in the Atherton, as well as at the live tapings in Honolulu of From The Top (2004) and A Prairie Home Companion (2006 and 2011). For Kailua Moon, Carvalho pairs with singer-songwriter-hula dancer Nani Edgar.
