Hot Tuna At The Winnipeg Folk Festival

A full day of music for the Tuna Gang today. We took the Beaver Bus to the Festival at 1030 and when we go there we had a bunch of press stuff to do before lunch. Lots of nice people to talk to and then lunch… a great way to start the day. Our ‘workshop’ was at the Bur Oak Stage and the ‘theme’ was Keep Your Lamps Trimmed And Burning. Sonny Landreth was far stage right, Alvin Hart was to Sonny’s left. Jack Casady was stage center, then me followed by Barry Mitterhoff on my left. For ninety minutes we all took turns picking songs and figuring out ways to play them together. To say it was good stuff would be an understatement. Good fun indeed.

At 2020 we hit the main stage and played an hour set… the list of which follows:

Hot Tuna 9, 2010
The Acoustic Trio
Jorma Kaukonen, Jack Casady
& Barry Mitterhoff
Winnipeg Folk Festival
Main Stage
Winnipeg, Manitoba
Saturday, July 10, 2010

1. Blue Railroad Train
2. I See The Light
3. Hesitation Blues
4. Come Back Baby
5. 99 Year Blues
6. I Am The Light Of This World
7. Death Don’t Have No Mercy
8. I Know You Rider
9. Encore: Embryonic Journey

After our set (which I thoroughly enjoyed) we stuck around to hear Pieta Brown and Bo Ramsey. I have to say, I loved their tweener. By the time they were done, I was ready to get back to the hotel… upload this blog and hit the sack for tomorrow is… another day! Oh yes… one last thought for the day. Someone wondered about my vacant Facebook doodad. All I can say is… ‘Free at last!’

It’s all good for sure.

    Jorma, I definitely appreciate the efforts of your blog. It’s great reading these insights, and I love the setlists.

    Good stuff! Thanks.

    Maestro: We make our own prisons — or set ourselves free — as is our wont.

    Whose idea was the FB page?
