Jorma Kaukonen's Fur Peace Ranch Announces 2014 Schedule

The 2014 lineup of workshops includes G.E. Smith, Bill Kirchen, Pete Huttlinger, Larry Campbell, Chris Smither, and of course, Jorma himself.

Pomeroy, OH (September 17, 2013) -- The Fur Peace Ranch Guitar Camp announces their 2014 Schedule or workshops with an amazing array of musicians. Located in the rolling hills of Southeast Ohio The Fur Peace Ranch is a center of musical activity. Workshops with Jorma Kaukonen, Jack Casady and many, many talents occur through out the year. In 1989, Jorma and Vanessa Kaukonen conceived what Jorma calls "a ranch that grows guitar players." Not a fantasy camp, but a place where both budding and seasoned musicians could immerse themselves and emerge with renewed inspiration and tangible progress in their music. “Focus on the things you love, listen with an open heart, and the music will speak for itself!” says Jorma of their teaching method.

Both a vacation and a learning experience, the workshops provide entertainment and insight. Grab your guitar, bass, inner voice and come join the music!

Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space. The beauty of the Slötvå reverb (which is derived from the company’s very similar Spin FV-1 chip-based Slö reverb) is how satisfying and simple it makes dramatic shifts between time/space textures.

With such a flashy flame top, the Silvertone 1445 was built to catch the eyes of department store shoppers.

I don’t know what’s going on lately, but I’m breaking down all over and my shoulder is the latest to crumble. When I was a kid I would practice guitar in my bedroom near a radiator with an ungrounded amp plug and I’d get a zap right through my guitar and into my hands. Well, my shoulder pain is like that now, only without the cool story of rock ’n’ roll survival. I simply woke up one day like this. After a few weeks of discomfort, I figured I’d try out a new pillow, since mine are flattened like a wafer. I ventured out to the mall and, much to my sadness, saw the local Sears store shuttered, with weeds growing up from the sidewalks and concrete barriers blocking the large glass doors. I know I don’t get out much, but, man, was I sad to see the Sears store I’d known since childhood closed-up like that. My wife was laughing at me because apparently it had been closed for some time. But since I seem to exist on a separate timeline than most folks, it was all news to me.
