- On Sunday, Aug. 24, Kaahele and Friends will be at The Cooperage, located at 1030 Main Street in Honesdale.

The show will start at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Kaahele is the Hawaiian word for ‘journey’ and the professional name of singer/songwriter Kelly Hyde. Kaahele was born and raised in Callicoon, NY.

Her affinity for music became apparent at a young age with her pursuit of both guitar and trumpet. As Kaahele grew up, she began to travel widely, eventually making her way to Hawaii.

Traditional Hawaiian culture helped form her emerging ‘sense of the world.' Kaahele’s deep respect for the importance of cultural traditions and the undisturbed landscape influences her music and shapes her work.

“[My] songs have a common theme about the separation between the modern and the natural worlds,” said Kaahele.

Combining her roots with her influential travels through Hawaii, Kaahele’s music takes on notes of upbeat folk and island reggae.

Her lyrics are uplifting and comical.  Kaahele blends the challenges of life with its lighthearted and playfulness in one effortless song.

Come see Kaahele’s first visit to The Cooperage Project for yourself. She will be joined on stage by several friends, including Stephen Faubel.

The fun begins at 7 p.m. This is a BYOB event. Donations collected at the door.

The Cooperage is operated by The Cooperage Project, a non-profit organization that seeks to build community through arts, education, and good times.
