Gorge Community Music presents Walt Keale in concert at The Dalles Masonic Lodge. This will be Keale’s second appearance in The Dalles, having filled the house during his performance on GCM’s Upstairs Stage in 2017. This show is not to be missed!
Keale is nephew to the Hawaiian music legend, Uncle Moe Keale, and first-cousin to Skippy and Israel IZ Kamakawiwo’ole. Together with them he brings forward the voice & presence of the Ancestors.
Keale’s story is rooted in the traditions of Niihau (Hawaii’s “forbidden island”), where his mother’s family has been for over a thousand years. His father’s Arkansas family, seeds of the Dustbowl migrations to the ag-rich farmland of the San Joaquin Valley, lived humbly among ranchers, farmers and migrant workers. In his music you will hear the sounds of Niihau, the bluegrass of the Dustbowl & the latin rhythms of jarocho, cumbia & ranchera.
