Friday, January 17th at 8 & 10:30PM, the Inter-Media Art
Center (IMAC) in Huntington, Long Island will present masterful
guitarist and renowned blues scholar Jorma Kaukonen. Kaukonen
will be joined by Blue Country, a rotating ensemble who, on
this date, will include mandolin virtuoso Barry Mitterhoff.
On Blue Country Heart, his debut recording for Columbia Records,
Kaukonen explores a little know chapter in American music history.
Blue Country Heart is a collection of rural blues songs from
the 1920's and 1930's written mostly by white tunesmiths including
Jimmie Rodgers, the Delmore Brothers, Slim Smith, Washington
Phillips, Cliff Carlisle and Jimmy "The Singing Governor"
a charter member of Jefferson Airplane and the equally legendary
(and still active) Hot Tuna, Jorma's playing has always been
steeped in the music of such Delta blues legends as Robert Johnson
and Mississippi Fred McDowell and most importantly the Piedmont
style gospel player Rev. Gary Davis, whose songs he has reintroduced
to a new generation of appreciative fans. On Blue Country Heart,
Jorma engages the tradition of early country music.
