The Emersons are a family of musicians – little Ken’s first
ukulele was the same one his mother played at the 1939
World’s Fair in San Francisco. In the mid 1960s Ken became
absorbed with the legendary San Francisco Sound, and was
much in demand for his skill on the bottleneck and steel
guitar. He then moved to Hawaii where he rediscovered his
musical roots – which turned out to be a vibrant source of
inspiration Over the years, Ken Emerson has performed as
sideman for almost every well-known Hawaiian musician.
