Shortly after the New Year, Hot Tuna will regroup for a month-long cross-country trek. Kicking off at Aspen, CO’s Wheeler Opera House on January 7, the veteran collective will venture south and then east, making
stops in Boulder, Flagstaff, AZ, Austin, New Orleans, Atlanta, Tampa, Charlotte, NC, Huntington, NY and Rochester, NY. Hot Tuna will conclude this leg of its tour with a January 26 performance at the Magic City Music Hall in Johnson City, NY. For this outing, the core duo of Jack Casady (bass) and Jorma Kaukonen(guitar) will be augmented by Barry Mitterhoff(mandolin) and Erik Diaz (drums). On January 20, between Tuna tour dates, Kaukonen and Mitterhoff will also sneak in two shows at Trenton, NJ’s Patriots Theater.
Hot Tuna have one scheduled date remaining before the end of the year. Tonight the quartet will play The Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett, NY.
