The ageless, beloved, smiling and accessible guitarist and songwriter Jorma Kaukonen is a unique figure in American music. 2015 has been a big year for the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer: It marks 50 years since he co-founded the Jefferson Airplane, and there’s a new documentary on his studio and performance place, the Fur Peace Ranch. His latest solo album, Ain’t in No Hurry, has received great reviews in Rolling Stone, the Huffington Post, American Songwriter, Relix, Mojo and others.
As part of the Woodstock Invitational Luthiers’ Showcase (and Tonewood Festival), Jorma Kaukonen appears at the Woodstock Playhouse this Saturday, October 24 at 8 p.m. Also performing will be Israeli superstar David Broza and composer/guitarist Doug Wamble. Ticket prices range from $50 to $75. For more information, visit ulsterpub.staging.wpengineplayhouse.org. The Woodstock Playhouse is located at 103 Mill Road in Woodstock.
