All shows include Barry Mitterhoff on a variety of instruments. Barry Mitterhoff is a mandolinist who cannot be pigeonholed. He performs a dazzling array of styles that include bluegrass, classical, swing and jazz, and a variety of ethnic styles such as Brazilian, Neapolitan songs, Klezmer and more. Perfect for accompanying whatever songs Jorma pulls out of his hat.
“Kaukonen’s highly inventive guitar work rocks tough and articulate, clean as a cat’s whiskers. He still sings with that slightly strange, quintessentially laid-back voice…waxing wry with an existential bent. His melodies, even mean as a snake, have warmed over the years with a bluegrass influence.”
– Twin Cities Daily Planet
“Within the music world, there are rare beings that seem to be able to lay hold of sounds and concepts that are seemingly ignorant of time and space. Jorma Kaukonen is one of those.”
– Honest Tune Magazine
Jorma’s 70th Birthday Celebration DVD
Jorma Kaukonen’s 70th Birthday Bash at the Beacon Theater in NYC on December 3 & 4, 2010 was a very special night, if not a historic one. There was electricity in the air and cause for celebration as Hot Tuna and special guests (We are talking about guitarists galore!) tore up the Beacon Theatre. Electric Hot Tuna and Friends lit up both nights with straight on rock and roll. It was a celebration of Jorma’s birthday for sure, and a celebration of a lifetime of friendships and musical camaraderie. To get your copy please go to the Fur Peace Ranch Store.
Steady As She Goes is one of Red House Records best sellers. It is available as a Deluxe Two-LP Set and CD. To purchase please go here.
“This is rock & roll with heart and an unwavering no nonsense spirit.
… Essential listening!”
