On 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" Davis.

As 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.

Tickets for this performance are $35.00 ($26.50 for IMAC Members). For tickets to this performance, or for other IMAC programs, call IMAC's 24-hour Arts-Line at (631) 549-ARTS. Tickets can also be purchased at the theater from noon to 6PM, Tuesdays to Fridays, and after 2PM on the day of the show. For further information, call IMAC's business office at (631) 549-9666.
