Two Rock and Roll Hall of Famers — Traffic‘s Dave Mason and Jefferson Airplane‘s Jorma Kaukonen — will be opening for Tedeschi Trucks Band this coming week during the group’s six-night run at New York City’s Beacon Theatre, which kicks off tonight. Mason will appear this Tuesday, while Kaukonen’s performance is scheduled for Wednesday.
This marks the sixth annual Beacon residency for Tedeschi Trucks Band, a 12-piece outfit led by ex-Allman Brothers Band slide-guitar whiz Derek Trucks and his wife, singer/guitarist Susan Tedeschi. Indigo Girls singer Amy Ray will be the support act at tonight’s concert, while Tedeschi Trucks will play two sets without an opener at the other three Beacon performances — this Saturday, October 1; Friday, October 7; and Saturday, October 8.
Tedeschi Trucks Band has a variety of U.S. shows on their U.S. tour itinerary, which is mapped out all the way through a March 2-4, 2017, engagement at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. Kaukonen also is scheduled to open for the group on December 1 at Boston’s Orpheum Theater, while Ray will support the band the following night at the same venue. Various other artists also are scheduled to open for Tedeschi Trucks at select shows, including Leon Russell, former Allman Brothers Band guitarist Jack Pearson and the late Levon Helm‘s daughter Amy and her group, The Handsome Strangers.
