So Just in time for Earth Day, Jack Johnson & Friends – Best of the Kokua Festival is available now! The album features a 13-track compilation of live performances from the Kokua Festival and highlights on stage collaborations with legendary musicians like Willie Nelson, Jackson Browne, Eddie Vedder, Ben Harper, Dave Matthews, Ziggy Marley, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley and more.
Jack dedicated the album to all the keiki (kids) of Hawaii:
“Hawaii has more school gardens because of Willie Nelson and Ben Harper. We have more field trips out into nature because of Eddie Vedder and Kawika Kahiapo. More recycling bins in classrooms becuase of Ziggy Marley and Paula Fuga, less plastic on the beaches because of Jackson Browne and John Cruz, more healthy school snacks because of Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds; and now thanks to you, and everyone who purchases this album, the Kokua Hawaii Foundationwill be able to continue inspiring Hawaii’s next generation of environmental stewards.”
– Aloha, Jack
