Tickets are on sale for a one-night-only appearance by Hapa Saturday, March 24 at 7:30 p.m. at the downtown Camden Opera House, Elm Street/Route 1. Hawaiian duo Barry Flanagan and Ron Kuala’au will perform island-style originals and traditional songs, accompanied on many numbers by hula performer Edieann Heali’I O Nalani Stanley.

Hapa’s self-titled first release in 1994 still remains the number one selling recording by a group or duo in the history of recorded Hawaiian music. It was produced, composed and arranged by Flanagan, with supporting vocal performances by Grammy-Award winning singer Kenny Loggins and guitar performance by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Stephen Stills. In recent years, Hapa’s music has appeared on the soundtrack for Adam Sandler’s “Just Go With It,” in which the duo is featured in the movie’s supper club scene shot on Maui. Public television viewers have seen Hapa perform in a PBS special.

 

Tickets are $20, $10 for students, available at camdenoperahouse.com or by calling 470-7066. The show is produced by local singer/songwriter Doug Day.
