Hot Tuna is jumping head first into the new year by launching a U.S. tour tonight in Northampton, Massachusetts. The trek will see the veteran blues-rock band — led by founding Jefferson Airplane guitarist Jorma Kaukonen and bassist Jack Casady — performing at a variety of theaters, performing arts centers and clubs with its acoustic lineup.
The tour leg will make its way down the East Coast into Florida, then head to Texas and Arizona before traveling up the West Coast through California and into Oregon, Washington and Idaho. The trek winds down with a February 21 concert in Boise, Idaho.
At half of the shows the band has scheduled prior to reaching California, Leon Russell will be on the bill as a special guest. Meanwhile, at six concerts during the West Coast swing, longtime Jackson Browne sideman David Lindley will serve as opening act. Read more on the story here.
