In a career that has already spanned nearly a half-century, Jorma Kaukonen has been the leading practitioner and teacher of fingerstyle guitar, one of the most highly respected interpreters of American roots music, blues, and Americana, and at the forefront of popular rock-and-roll. He was a founding member of two legendary bands, The Jefferson Airplane and the still-touring Hot Tuna, a Grammy nominee for his highly acclaimed “Blue Country Heart,” and the most in-demand instructor in the galaxy of stars who teach at the guitar camp that he and his wife operate in picturesque Southeastern Ohio. With Stars In My Crown, Jorma proves that he is continuing to explore and grow, and that he is at home in numerous musical genres.
A modern master of acoustic folk blues, renowned for his driving finger style guitar and understated vocals, Smither showcases the breadth of his talents in his subtly melancholy reworking of the standard "Sittin' on Top of the World." Now in his fourth decade as a performer, Smither has proven his mettle in the many albums of his own material he's cut for the Flying Fish, Hightone and Signature Sounds labels, and his songs "Love You Like a Man" and "I Feel the Same" have been recorded by Bonnie Raitt. Smither recently issued an album of previously unreleased live material called Lost & Found, available exclusively for fans through his website. Chris is an acclaimed singer-songwriter, whose career spans 40 years, 12 albums, and three DVDs. His recent CD, TIME STANDS STILL, was released last fall. He tours worldwide, performing at clubs, concert halls, and festivals in the US, Canada, Europe and Australia. His songs have appeared in various films and TV shows and have been covered by Bonnie Raitt, Emmylou Harris and Diana Krall, among others.
