City Winery Boston is welcoming rock and roll legend Jorma Kaukonen live in concert on Friday, June 23rd at 8:00 PM. In a career that has already spanned a half-century, Kaukonen has been one of the most highly respected interpreters of American roots music, blues, and rock. He has been creating music since 1964 and is recognized as one of the foremost singer-songwriters in his field, continuing to tour the world bringing his unique styling to old blues tunes while presenting new songs of weight and dimension.

Kaukonen is a founding member of two legendary bands, Jefferson Airplane and the still-touring Hot Tuna. His secret is in playing spontaneous and unfiltered music, with an individual expression of personality.

Jorma Kaukonen has been a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee since 1996 as a member of Jefferson Airplane with trailblazing albums Surrealistic Pillow, After Bathing at Baxter’s, Crown of Creation, Bless Its Pointed Little Head and Volunteers.

Throughout his career, Kaukonen has recorded more than a dozen solo albums on major labels beginning with 1974’s Quah and continuing with his acoustic releases on Red House Records, Stars in My Crown and River of Time.

Kaukonen said in a recent interview he  is constantly looking to take his musical horizons further, always moving forward,  “You just can’t go backward. The arrow of time only goes in one direction”.

In 2016, Jorma, Jack Casady and the other members of Jefferson Airplane were awarded a GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award for their contributions to American music. “Jorma Kaukonen is a force in American music, equally adept at fingerpicked acoustic folk and blues as he is at wailing on an electric.” – Acoustic Guitar.
