Kahumoku and his fellow musicians on the “Treasures of Hawaiian Slack Key
Guitar” album were honored Sunday at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
Kahumoku saluted Valley Isle fans for their support and said he was grateful that he and his
colleagues brought the Grammy to Maui for the third straight year for their albums recorded at weekly Napili Kai Beach Resort concerts. “We’re lucky we won,” he said.
He received the Grammy-nominee medal and will receive the trophy in the months to come.
