George Kahumoku Jr. is releasing a new album titled "Paniolo Slack Key - Songs of the Hawaiian Cowboy". It's music that he says he's familiar with because he's been playing it his entire life. The album celebrates the cowboy life style that has been passed on for generations in Kahumoku's family.
There are 18 songs, three are original. The rest are traditional songs that Kahumoku heard and sang growing up. He wants to continue his family's work by ranching and farming and playing slack key guitar.
He is joined in studio B with David Kamakahi.
