Jorma Kaukonen performs at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall on Sunday, February 19, 2023.
“A pioneer of San Francisco psychedelia, Jorma Kaukonen is a bona fide graybeard folk swami. He mostly lays back, a master in situ, unfurling melodies and savoring every note.” – Rolling Stone Magazine
In a career that has already spanned a half-century, Kaukonen is one of the most highly respected interpreters of American roots music, blues, and rock. A member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and a Grammy recipient, Jorma was at the forefront of popular rock and roll. He’s one of the founders of the San Francisco sound and a progenitor of Psychedelic Rock. Not to mention, he’s also a founding member of two legendary bands — Jefferson Airplane and the still-touring Hot Tuna.
A music legend and one of the finest singer-songwriters in his field, Jorma continues to tour the world bringing his unique styling to old blues tunes while presenting new songs of weight and dimension. His secret is in playing spontaneous and unfiltered music, with an individual expression of personality.
In 2016 …. Jorma, Jack Casady and the other members of Jefferson Airplane were awarded The GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award for their contributions to American music.
