Innovative Giving Enhancement (IGE) will present A Grateful Aloha as the 2022 installment of the IGE Music and Art Immersion experience. Jennifer Hartswick, Eric Krasno and Peter Rowan are among the musicians taking part in the event which will be held in Kaua’i, Hawaii January 3 – 11, 2022.

Limited to 150 participants, attendees will have the chance to perform and interact with the musicians at the intimate event. A Grateful Aloha will feature immersion concerts and jams that integrate some of Kaua’i and islandwide Hawaiian players for a run of five public performances and additional concerts held exclusively for IGE participants during the nine-day, eight-night event.

Nicki Bluhm, Holly Bowling, Matt Butler, James Casey, Natalie Cressman, Ian Faquini, Ross James, Scott Law, Grahame Lesh, Bill & Jilian Nershi and Elliott Peck round out the initial artist collective for A Grateful Aloha.

“By design, participants are woven within the fabric of every unique, daily experience as together with their favorite musical icons they encounter the tropical splendor of Kaua’i and the richness of Hawaiian culture,” reads a press release announcing A Grateful Aloha. “Participants foster community with their favorite musical icons while experiencing larger scale concerts, intimate collaborations of curated supergroups, and intercultural jams, as well as significant performances by legendary Hawaiian master musicians, local artists and dance troupes.”

Proceeds from A Grateful Aloha will support Kaua’i Hospice, Kaua’i Independent Food Bank, Kaua’i Community College Creative Media Program, Kaua’i Concert Association, Garden Island Arts Council, Music in the Schools, Youth performing arts organizations, Kauai Planning & Action Alliance, Anaina Hou, Surfrider Foundation Kaua’i and Kaua’i’s Boys and Girls Clubs.
