The Hapa Hillbillies

May 21, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

$55

Sunday afternoon Bluegrass & Americana shows at Fremont Theater. Join us every Sunday for music, food and drink. This week, direct from Hood River, via Honolulu, it’s The Hapa Hillbillies!

“Hapa Haole” comes from Hawaiian slang for half (“hapa”) and the derogatory term “haole” describing people who were not from the islands and it also refers to the musical stew cooked up when traditional Hawaiian bands touring the mainland around 1915 met American jazz musicians. The blend is a beguiling mix of English and Hawaiian words, traditional vocal harmonies, Hawaiian instruments but played with jazz stylings.  Hot and Sweet! The Hapa Hillbillies take the sound farther by spicing it up with a little country and add a old time hillbilly flourish.

$5 suggested // All ages
