"Hi’ilawe" — Led Kaapana, Jake Shimabukuro, Jeff Peterson, Danny Carvalho
During last Saturday’s regular broadcast, our four Hawaiian guests collaborated on this traditional song about love and a mighty waterfall on the Big Island. Stay tuned — audio clips and videos from that night’s New Year’s Eve broadcast are coming soon!
"Let’s Have a Party!"
Garrison invited the audience on stage for some dancing as The Guy’s All-Star Shoe Band helped kick off 2012 during Saturday’s New Year’s Eve special. Check out a few photos from fans at our Facebook page.
Rehearsal is underway at the Blaisdell Center! Tune in this evening for two live performances from Honolulu — the regular broadcast at 5pm CT and our special “Hawaiian New Year’s Eve” show at 9pm CT. Joining us for both shows: Jake Shimabukuro, Led Kaapana, Danny Carvalho, Jeff Peterson, and Heather Masse.
"Bohemian Rhapsody" — Jake Shimabukuro
More guests have just been announced for our two live New Year’s Eve broadcasts from Honolulu!
YouTube ukulele star Jake Shimabukuro will join us (check out his cover of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” above) along with the legendary Led Kaapana, slack key guitar masters Danny Carvalho and Jeff Peterson, and good friends Heather Masse and Erica Rhodes.
They’ll all be performing on both 12/31 shows so check with your local station to see if they’re carrying the “A Prairie Home Companion’s Hawaiian New Year’s Eve” special right after the regular Saturday broadcast!
