Jorma Kaukonen announces box set, tour dates and online workshops


Presented on vinyl during Record Store Day last July, Culture Factory will be released John hurlbut and Jorma Kaukonen: The River Sinks Volume Two (CFU-01200) in all formats on September 24, 2021. In parallel they release a box The river flows Vol. 1 & 2 / The Complete Sessions, a CD box with 8 live tracks recorded on a special evening at Concerts de quarantaine as a bonus disc.

Recorded last summer with Volume One, this album continues on the same path. “Guitar maestro Kaukonen shares headlining with singer / guitarist John Hurlbut in a memorable six-string storytelling session,” said Sterophile and No depression revealed “Kaukonen and Hurlbut see music as conversation… What we hear in this acoustic wonder is an intimate tête-à-tête celebrating 40 years of friendship.”

John Hurlbut and Jorma have been friends since 1984. After working together in the late ’80s and early’ 90s, including shows where John opened for Jorma or Hot Tuna, their friendship solidified largely on the basis of musical interests and common talents. Being close friends and neighbors, John and Jorma have done, and do, a lot of spontaneous picking together. Jorma enjoys providing main flourishes by supporting John’s voice and rhythm guitar. Thus, while “staying in place” at the Fur Peace Ranch, Jorma and John were able to capture their friendship on vinyl!

“It’s a celebration of great music, great acoustic guitar work and a close friendship …” – Gold mine

“The real genius rings where the finger meets the string.” – Grateful web

“Kaukonen provides a distinctive accompaniment, showing his versatility … his main work is a revelation.” – The living blues

“Hurlbut’s performance resonates with emotional sincerity; his vocals seem to come from a guy who’s seen a few things, good and bad.” – The fuse of the arts

“The River Flows is aptly titled because… these songs overwhelm us, transporting us with their clarifying beauty and genius. ” – FolkAlley

For the road...

Jorma will be playing with Jack Casady (Hot Tuna), friends and playing solo this fall. Buy your tickets now, as venues offer additional space between tables, often reducing their capacity. Mask yourself and come have fun!
