TWO Shows – Saturday, October 24 at 4pm and 7:30pm! As a founding member of both Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna, a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, and one of Rolling Stones’ 100 Greatest Guitarists, Jorma Kaukonen has remained one the most respected interpreters of American roots, blues and rock for more than 50 years.
Kaukonen was at the forefront of popular rock and roll, helping to define the San Francisco sound and a progenitor of Psychedelic Rock. He is a music legend and one of the finest singer-songwriters in his field. Kaukonen continues to tour the world – both solo and with Hot Tuna – bringing his unique styling to old blues tunes while presenting new songs of weight and dimension. His secret is in playing spontaneous and unfiltered music, with an individual expression of personality.
“A pioneer of San Francisco psychedelia, Jorma Kaukonen is a bonafide graybeard folk swami. He mostly lays back, a master in situ, unfurling melodies and savoring every note.” – Rolling Stone Magazine
