Mark Kailana Nelson’s music transports you to a tranquil world where tropical winds carry the echoes of soft music and far-off lands. Explore music from islands real and imaginary, lovingly played on instruments from widely different parts of the world. Bringing together two of the world’s most beautiful instrumental styles-the Hawaiian slack key guitar and Mark’s ground-breaking Celtic dulcimer-Mark Nelson creates an enchanting new sound as soothing as an island breeze.
During a career that started well before he could drive, Mark has picked up music from places as far afield as the South Pacific, the Irish Sea and Alta California. A gifted multi-instrumentalist, he is equally at home in a wide variety of traditional music settings and a number of interesting folk instruments.
