Welcome to the official website for Jef Culhane. Iconic lead guitarist from Minnesota, renown worldwide.

Jef Culhane has had a decades-long and wildly varied career performing as a highly accomplished guitarist. His talent allowed him to master other string instruments as well, including mandolin, and other less common instruments. Demand for his ability led to a great deal of session work over the last four decades. Additionally his shows led Jef to perform not only all throughout the USA, but also in the Caribbean and Austria!

Jef is now back in his home state of Minnesota, after receiving a diagnosis of terminal cancer. However, even that could not prevent him from making his new record, with a release date of June/July 2013.

Having returned both to his hometown, and his musical roots, he has reformed his iconic 1979-1980 band: Resistor.

Check here for additional updates regarding performances and the official record release date!

Thank you to all who attended Jef Culhane’s Resistor performance last June 30th opening for Nektar and Martin Turner’s Wishbone Ash at Famous Dave’s in Uptown Minneapolis .
