Birds may fly south for the winter, but tuna flies west. Hot Tuna has announced a string of West Coast dates for February including stops in California, Oregon, and Washington. The legendary duo of guitarist Jorma Kaukonen and bassist Jack Casady will be appearing mostly in their acoustic format with an electric date (featuring drummer Justin Gulp) at The Fillmore in San Francisco.
The duo is also scheduled for a March performance at the guitarist’s Fur Peace Station and a handful of dates in May.
Check out Casady laying down a line on his gorgeous Ribbecke Diana bass from this 2015 performance of “Ain’t In No Hurry”:
