Why See Hot Tuna & Leon Russell?
Hot Tuna is comprised of Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady. They were two of the original members of Jefferson Airplane, who led the psychedelic rock movement of the Sixties with tracks like Somebody to Love and White Rabbit. After leaving Jefferson, the duo formed Hot Tuna, concentrating on their shared love of the blues, and have been jamming away, electrically and acoustically for over 40 years.
They are joined on this short tour by Leon Russell, the magnificently bearded singer songwriter who has played with everyone from George Harrison to Frank Sinatra. So often the sideman or backing musician, Russell has had his fair share of the limelight in recent years due to his collaborative effort The Union with Elton John, which earned him a Grammy nod.
Performance date: 20 June 2014
