HPR's All Things Considered Special Guest: Jefferson Starship
This Saturday night at the Hawaii Theatre, Jefferson Starship performs, and HPR All Things Considered Host Dave Lawrence welcomed them to the show today. The group’s senior member, multi-instrumentalist David Freiberg, not only has history in both Jefferson Airplane and Jefferson Starship, but was also part of fellow San Francisco Bay group Quicksilver Messenger Service. Remaining original member Paul Kantner passed away in 2016, and the band he assembled has continued on, fronted by singer Cathy Richardson, who their website notes has encouraged and supported by legendary Jefferson Airplane/Jefferson Starship vocalist and songwriter Grace Slick.
