We are thrilled, delighted, and honored to welcome Robyn Mahealani Kneubuhl to the staff of the 2014 Hawai’i Island Ukulele Retreat, October 20 -26, 2014. An accomplished musician and dancer (and adored by her students), she has a musical lineage that goes way back. Her mother, Emma Veary, was a headliner at the Monarch Room of the Royal Hawaiian Hotel, the Halekulani, the Hilton Hawaiian Village, and frequent a frequent guest star on the original “Hawai`i Five-O.” Her mother’s musical gifts were not wasted on Robyn, who embodies the beauty of the golden days of Waikiki through her music and dance.
Robyn is a life-long student of Hawaiian arts and culture, a composer, hula and `ukulele instructor, generous with her time and talent, and eager to share her knowledge with her students. Robyn currently resides on Maui and is one third of the “Hula Honeys” who have three CD’s out: Life Just Got Sweeter, Girl Talk, and A Hui Hou. Robyn has taught hula and `ukulele for Lark Camp and Keola Beamer’s Aloha Music Camps and has joined us several times at Wine Country ‘Ukulele Festival. It only seems natural to have her us join us on Hawai’i Island in October, for the Hawai’i Island Ukulele Retreat.
Here’s a little sample from the Hula Honeys’ Life Just Got Sweeter CD:
Registration for the Hawai’i Island Ukulele Retreat is now open and all lodging categories are still available. But you should act fast to make sure you get all the options you want.
