Hot Tuna , the psychedelic blues group led by founding Jefferson Airplane guitarist Jorma Kaukonen and bassist Jack Casady , has lined up a long series of U.S. concerts that will kick off next week and run well into the summer.  The tour begins June 6 in Durham, North Carolina, and is scheduled through a July 28 concert in Floyd, Virginia.

For most of the dates, the band will perform in its acoustic configuration, which also includes mandolin player Barry Mitterhoff .  At several late-July shows, the "Electric Hot Tuna" lineup featuring Mitterhoff and drummer Skoota Warner will play.  Pop-folk singer/songwriter Jill Sobule will serve as opening act for all of the Hot Tuna shows in June with the exception of their appearance at New York's Clearwater Festival.

Prior to the start of Hot Tuna's tour, Kaukonen will play several solo concerts, and he also has a few more solo gigs in early July.
