SLACKERS IN PARADISE - KEN EMERSON AND JIM “KIMO” WEST
Jim Kimo West and Ken Emerson are both living legends in the world of Hawaiian slack key and acoustic steel guitar. They strive for freshness and spontaneity in their duet shows in keeping with the true Hawaiian “kanikapila” style. Their diverse musical inﬂuences venture beyond the islands toward the land of blues, ragtime and jazz. Both Ken and Kimo have a number of Grammy, recording and touring credits.
Ken was composer/guitarist on Hawaii's ﬁrst Grammy-winning album “Slack Key Guitar Vol 2” and also featured guitarist on “Morph The Cat” by Donald Fagen (Steely Dan). His many other touring and recording credits include Jackson Brown, Boz Scaggs, Charlie Musselwhite, Todd Rundgren, Darryl Hall and Elvin Bishop as well as Hawaiian slack key legends Gabby Pahinui, Moe Keale, Genoa Keawe and Raymond Kane.
Besides his solo slack key career, Kimo is long-time guitarist on CD’s and tours for the world’s most famous musical satirist, “Weird Al” Yankovic whose recent CD, “Mandatory Fun” debuted at #1 on the Billboard charts and won the Grammy for Best Comedy Recording
