EPISODES OF AMERICAN ROUTES WITH JORMA KAUKONEN

FROM THE SHOW: AMERICA'S HIPPIE HERITAGE

In his native D.C., Jack Casady learned to love and play the Piedmont blues and gospel. In the mid '60s, the bassist followed his friend Jorma Kaukonen to San Francisco to join the psychedelic folk-rockers Jefferson Airplane, playing on some of the best-known sides of the scene. Never quite at home in rock and roll, Casady left the Airplane to play more traditional blues, acoustic and electric, in Hot Tuna.

FROM THE SHOW: ROCK 'N' ROUTES

Guitarist and founding member of Jefferson Airplane Jorma Kaukonen talks about how his folk blues roots influenced his electric sound and why he thinks the Delmore Brothers are the fathers of Rock and Roll.

ROCK 'N' ROUTES

The sound of rock continues to dominate the musical spirit of America. Loud and anthemic, many artists eventually come to and pass through rock n' roll from country, folk, R&B, even gospel. American Routes takes a look at three roots musicians who rock: Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna veteran Jorma Kaukonen talks about his recent acoustic work; Texas trio the Flatlanders (Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Butch Hancock and Joe Ely) strum a few tunes in the studio; and New Orleans' own Lloyd Price shows how his R&B roots helped give birth to rock n' roll.
