“Before the Beacon Show, Jorma was honored by the Rex Foundation, with the Ralph J. Gleason Award, for his contribution to roots music education, awareness and advocacy.

Ralph J. Gleason Award is in memory of music journalist Ralph J. Gleason, a major figure in the advancement of music in America in the 1960s, whose openness to new music and ideas transcended differences between generations and styles.

The Rex Foundation award provided Jorma with a grant that allowed the Fur Peace Ranch to the help Spencer Bohren bring some much needed and appreciated musical education to Appalachia.”
