In a 1.5h solo set live streamed on May 2 from his own 200-seat theater on his Fur Peace Ranch in Pomeroy, Ohio, Jorma Kaukonen ’64 works through a lifelong repertoire spanning ragtime and psychedelia.

As Jon Pareles writes, “Since the pandemic hit, Kaukonen has been playing mostly solo weekly concerts from its cozy stage, working through a lifelong repertoire … trying not to repeat a song and garrulously answering fan questions delivered by his wife, Vanessa.”

Watch the concert below. The concert, along with others from the series, are available on the Fur Peace Ranch YouTube Channel.
