Podcast 428: Jorma Kaukonen

Jorma Kaukonen (Hot Tuna, Jefferson Airplane) joins us onstage at the Fretboard Summit to talk about his love for Flammang acoustic guitars, “the Legendary Typewriter Tape” with Janis Joplin, why he’s about to take a break from electric gigs, the status of Fur Peace Ranch, the magic of Jack Casady, “Water Song” “Embryonic Journey,” why it’s easier to teach songwriting than do it, CBD oil, and so much more.

Recorded live at the Fretboard Summit on August 25, 2023. Our next Summit takes place August 22-24, 2024 at Chicago’s Old Town School of Folk Music.
