Jeff Peterson (guitarist)
Jeff's style fuses traditional Slack Key with elements of classical and jazz guitar, at which styles he is also adept. Jeff studied classical guitar at USC's Thornton School of Music before returning to the islands to play and teach in the Honolulu area.
Jeff has contributed to many albums, including a series of slack key and bamboo flute duets with Riley Lee, several slack key compilations including the Grammy Winning album "Slack Key Guitar Volume 2", "Slack Key Guitar: The Artistry of Jeff Peterson", as well as his most recent solo album "Maui On My Mind". He performed at BAM's Next Wave Festival in 2008 in collaboration with the string quartet ETHEL.
Jeff has shared the stage with many Hawaiian legends at concerts throughout the islands and Japan, and recently did a stint with the Nashville Symphony.
