Brother Noland is a storyteller at heart and music is how he shares his experiences. Born and raised in the islands but well traveled, Brother Noland is a legacy Hawaiian artist, who has deeply influenced contemporary Hawaiian music with timeless hits such as “Coconut Girl” and “Big Ship.”
As an impactful player in Hawai’i”s music scene and one of Hawai’i”s most respected artists, he was honored in 2014 by the State of Hawai’i for a “Lifetime Achievement in Music” award. But despite all the accolades, Brother Noland has never forgotten his roots and the community. Through his philanthropy he helps at-risk youth define their choices and make a quality connection to the community. His Ho’ea Initiative is dedicated to teaching children how to live off the ‘aina (land) and the ocean. Limited seating is provided on the lawn; blankets, mats and low beach chairs are welcome. The ongoing Hawaiian Music Series is sponsored by the Hawai’i Tourism Authority and the County of Maui Office of Economic Development, with support from KPOA 93.5 FM.
