Jorma Kaukonen September 22, 7:30 pm
with Very Special Guests Rob Ickes & Trey Hensley
In a career that has already spanned a half-century, 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 nominee, 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 music legend and one of the finest singer-songwriters in music.
In addition to his work with Hot Tuna, Jorma has recorded more than a dozen solo albums on major labels beginning with 1974’s Quah and continuing with his recent acoustic releases on Red House Records—2007’s Stars in My Crown and River of Time, produced by Larry Campbell and featuring Levon Helm.

NPR has referred to GRAMMY-nominated duo Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley as “two musical phenoms.” Ickes has won an unprecedented 15 IBMA Dobro Player of the Year awards and Hensley has been called “Nashville’s hottest young player” by Acoustic Guitar magazine. No Depression has said of their new Compass Records album, WORLD FULL OF BLUES: “Drop the needle on any song on ‘World Full of Blues’ — there’s not a bad song here simply because Dobro player Rob Ickes and guitarist and singer Trey Hensley are two of the finest musicians playing today.”
