Hot Tuna Blues

The founding members of Hot Tuna join forces with other great musical talents to celebrate their fascinating musical odyssey that has spanned more than 40 years. From their early days playing together in Washington, D.C., to their years with Jefferson Airplane, to their current acoustic and electric blues music, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady have always been an important part of the American music scene. The duo formed Hot Tuna as a side project in 1969 to explore their passion for blues, jazz, bluegrass, and folk, combining Kaukonen’s talent for finger-picking guitar with Casady’s interest in the electric bass. Joining them for this performance are blues icon Charlie Musselwhite on harmonica and guitar and two-time Grammy winner and Americana and bluegrass guitarist Jim Lauderdale. “[Hot Tuna’s] music is more current now than ever before.” (
