TOMMMY EMMANUEL is a lot of things: an esteemed Grammy-nominated guitarist, composer and performer whose must-see shows combine virtuosity with his engaging storytelling wit. He's a prolific recording artist, has been twice voted Best Acoustic Guitarist by readers of Guitar Player magazine and honored as a Member of the Order of Australia. He's also a road warrior and a modern medicine man.

It has been an amazing 50 years for Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady.  Their band, Hot Tuna, invokes as many different moods and reactions as there are Hot Tuna fans — millions of them. To some Hot Tuna is a reminder of some wild and happy times. To others, that name will forever be linked to their own discovery of the power and depth of American blues and roots music. To newer fans, Hot Tuna is a tight, masterful act who define the cutting edge of great music.

Legendary blues preservationists Hot Tuna performed a three-night engagement in Berkeley’s storied Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse to bid farewell to 2018. On the eve of their fiftieth anniversary together as Hot Tuna, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady were unmistakably grateful to be still playing and creating together.

Iconic architects of San Francisco’s celebrated psychedelic sound, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, brought their enduring roots-infused mélange, Hot Tuna, to Eugene’s (Ore.) McDonald Theater on Sept. 1st and suitably verified their vaunted rock-and-roll credentials. Though not as widely known as their seminal 60’s group Jefferson Airplane, Hot Tuna have been playing searing, head-spinning shows for nearly five decades.

Exemplifying more stateliness and grace than ever while still demonstrating the raucousness and instrumental power to bust open a barn door, Hot Tuna with Steve Kimock in tow wonderfully raged for three hours in Sacramento on September 4. The show, presented along with the rest of the current tour as “Electric Hot Tuna,” personified their status as one of the all-time best full-throttle power-blues/rock trios to have ever plugged in.

On August 28th, St. Martin’s Press released the long-awaited autobiography from iconic musician Jorma Kaukonen. Whether you’re familiar with Jorma as lead guitarist of the seminal San Francisco rock band Jefferson Airplane, the beloved American-roots act Hot Tuna, or the founder of Fur Peace Ranch is Southeast Ohio, his previously untold story is both moving and exhilarating.

Electric Hot Tuna's music is unique, an expression of Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady's individual personalities who forge their improvisational sounds with a feeling of significance into a dynamic event. Their electric sound is complete with the addition of drummer Justin Guip,* whose "emphatic yet fluid timekeeping is a true complement." Starting August 25, Steve Kimock, the blazing psychedelic guitarist versatile enough to touch almost all aspects of American music, will join Hot Tuna on tour.

Ask you mothers and wives along to roam the forest, walk the labyrinth, explore the Psylodelic Museum or simply relax in the warm spring air in Southeast Ohio. It’s a beautiful time of year at the Fur Peace Ranch! Or…. send them to a spa and come to the Fur Peace Ranch May 11-14. It’s a musical adventure that includes the whole family or not!
