I’m going back to the blues well. It’s a deep well that set me on fire as a young musician. From Muddy Waters to Jesse Fuller I was inspired to find my own voice which I did with the help of my old Gibson. Drawing from a lifetime of blues excursions, I will take you back to that place and break down a few of my favorite blues songs. Though this is a level 3 fingerstyle class, we will be addressing advanced technique and execution in addition to, “just learning the songs.” (https://citywinery.com/newyork/jormas-march-medicine-music-to-heal-the-soul) “His dexterity runs circles around most players … His material stands the test of time in a way that most others will not.” – Billboard From his early groundbreaking psychedelic days, through his lifelong reverence for finger-picking traditional blues, and the wisdom gained from a musical life of playing American music, Jorma is a living legend and, without a doubt at 80 years old, is “a master in situ” and one of the “Top 100 Greatest Guitarists.” – Rolling Stone Magazine John Hurlbut & Jorma Kaukonen The River Flows Is Being Heard Across the Country! Culture Factory USA It’s a great Radio week for The River Flows. The album came in at #2 on the AMA / CDX Top 5 Most Added Albums Chart and is also #2 on their Top 5 “Bubblin Up” Chart. Turn on your radio (or favorite listening device) and tune into fine stations across the country who are playing it! “The River Flows rolls out of those shows, cascading over us with streams of brilliant guitar work. The album closes with Hurlbut’s original song “Someone’s Calling,” a lilting meditation on those we’ve lost and the ways they live in our hearts and whose spirits are palpable.” – Henry Carrigan, FolkAlley “There’s no better way to converse than to play music with a good friend! John and I have been talking for almost forty years and we welcome you to sit in on the conversation.” – Jorma Kaukonen Listen to the single “Travelin’: https://soundcloud.com/johnhurlbut/sets/the-river-flows-3 Free Live Quarantine Concerts Every Saturday Night!
