A pioneer of counterculture-era psychedelic rock, the group was the first band from the San Francisco scene to achieve international mainstream success. They performed at the three most famous American rock festivals of the 1960s—Monterey (1967), Woodstock(1969) and Altamont (1969)— as well as headlining the first Isle of Wight Festival (1968). Their 1967 record Surrealistic Pillow is regarded as one of the key recordings of the "Summer of Love". Two hits from that album, "Somebody to Love" and "White Rabbit", are listed in Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Songs of All Time".

Kaukonen learned to play guitar as a teenager in Washington, DC, but before moving to the DC area, Jorma and family lived in Pakistan , the Philippines and other locales as he followed his father's State Department career from assignment to assignment before returning to the place of his birth. As a teenager in Washington, Kaukonen and friend Jack Casady formed a band called The Triumphs, with Kaukonen on rhythm guitar and Casady on lead. [29] Kaukonen departed Washington for studies at Antioch College , where friend Ian Buchanan taught him fingerstyle guitar playing. Buchanan also introduced Kaukonen to the music of Reverend Gary Davis , whose songs have remained important parts of Kaukonen's repertoire throughout his career.
