Guitar legend Leo Kottke's innovative fingerpicking style of guitar-playing has earned him five 'Best Folk Guitarist' wins (Guitar Player magazine), a 'Best Instrumentalist' win (Performance magazine), an induction into the Guitar Player Hall of Fame, and two Grammy nods, among other accolades.
With the 1968 appearance of his debut album, Twelve String Blues, he raised the bar for solo acoustic guitarists everywhere. From seminal albums like Ice Water and My Feet Are Smiling to his collaboration with Phish bassist Mike Gordon and beyond, there's no limit to the creative new heights this virtuoso explores.
In concert, Kottke intersperses humorous and often bizarre monologues with vocal and instrumental selections from throughout his acclaimed career, played solo on his signature 6- and 12-string guitars.
This is a must-see concert for acoustic music aficionados!
