Hawaii’s HAWI Gallery: Vintage Ukuleles, Local Art, Authors, Crafts & Music

Posted on June 16, 2012

This article originally appeared in June 2012 on We Blog The World. Below is a snippet from Renee Blodgett’s spa experience on Hawaii Island.

When you think of Hawaii, you think of many things and certainly one vision is hula dancing with a guitar or ukulele player on a beach.

As I was driving out of Hawi, an adorable little town in the north of the Big Island of Hawaii, I saw the word Ukulele out of the corner of my eye and pulled a quick U-ey. I had to stop.

Hawi Gallery it said…there was also a sign that said local artists, local authors, local crafts, local jewelry, local music, and yes, local ukuleles. How could you not stop?

In addition to having a range of ukuleles to choose from, they also have ukulele workshops with Andy Andrews, the founder of the Ukulele Club of Santa Cruz the third Thursday of every month.

They represent a number of bands including Aquila Strings, Big Island Ukuleles, D’Addario, Hal Leonard, Hawaii Kai Ukuleles, Island Provisions Ukulele Straps, Kiwaya Ukuleles, Riptide Ukuleles, Planet Waves, MEl Bay, and Zaphoon.

They offer ukuleles from the following luthiers: Black Bear/Duane Heilman, James Curtis, David Gomes, Haiku/Brian Luker, Kamaka, Bill MacDonald, Sonny D, Dennis McKenna and Tangi.
