From this morning’s episode of of Hawai’i News Now Sunrise, host Dan Cooke introduces steel guitarist Alan Akaka and friends, all of whom will be performing tomorrow in Honolulu at the Hawaiian Steel Guitar Festival at the plaza state on the Waikiki Beach Walk from 3 to 7pm. Admission is free.

BTW: the 9-year old girl playing and singing in this is Malie Lyman, who is the great granddaughter of the legendary Hawaiian singer, Auntie Genoa Keawe. One article states that she only started learning to play three months ago but if she keeps up with it, she will be someone who will extend the traditions of Hawaiian music to the next generation.
