Performer to share Hawaii history in song

Songwriter and storyteller Kimo Nevius will perform a moonlight concert at the Bailey House Museum in Wailuku on Saturday. Gates will open at 7 p.m.

Nevius will feature his compositions about old Hawaii, from the arrival of Captain Cook to the “Boat Day” era. Steeped in American folk traditions, his songs tell the stories of whale ships, missionaries, cowboys and plantation workers who came to reap the sugar harvests.

Blankets or a low-back beach chair may be brought to the concert. Limited seating is available for kupuna on a first-come, first-seated basis. The museum will be open, and the museum shop will offer for sale products created by local craftspeople. Coolers with snacks will be permitted. Water and soda will be available for purchase.

Tickets are $10 for general admission and $5 for Maui Historical Society members, which includes admission to the Bailey House Museum before and during the concert.

Children younger than 12 will be admitted free with a paid adult.

Maui Historical Society members will be admitted free with RSVP by Friday. Tickets can be purchased from the Bailey House Museum or by calling 244-3326, or by email to
