Still Truckin’: Hot Tuna Announces Massive 2012 Tour

Hot Tuna Steady As She Goes 2012 TourLongtime collaborators Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady are gearing up for a major 2012 Hot Tuna tour, in support of their latest album, Steady As She Goes. The new album was the first featuring new material in nearly 20 years for the group.

The duo, who have performed together for over 50 years, will be joined by Barry Mitterhoff on mandolin and Skoota “The Funky” Warner on drums. This is the same line up as the album. The tour will include both acoustic and electric shows, varied by date.
