Jorma Kaukonen performs his 7th free solo Quarantine Concert from the Fur Peace Ranch this coming Saturday, May 16 at 8 p.m. EDT. For six weeks Jorma has been performing, telling true-life tales and talking about his songs, often playing them on the very guitar he wrote the song on. It is a fascinating look at this artist’s history and influences.
In a career that has already spanned a half-century, guitarist and vocalist, Jorma Kaukonen has been one of the most highly respected interpreters of American roots music, blues, and Americana, and at the forefront of popular rock-and-roll. A member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and a Grammy recipient, he is a founding member of two legendary bands, Jefferson Airplane and the still-touring Hot Tuna.
Jorma Kaukonen’s repertoire goes far beyond his involvement creating psychedelic rock; he is a legend and one of the finest singer-songwriters and master instrumentalist in music today. Jorma tours the world bringing his unique styling to old blues and writing new songs with insight and imagination. It truly is amazing how a great artist can continually perform authentic unfiltered renditions of both his own and time honored traditional songs. Join in for an hour or so, lean back and enjoy the music.
