Leo Kottke

Solo Virtuoso Acoustic Guitarist

Leo Kottke is considered by many to be one of the greatest and most influential acoustic guitar players of the past forty years. Widely known for his innovative fingerpicking style, Kottke has the ability to embrace folk and pop melodies as readily as he assimilates jazz, blues, and classical influences into his music. For all his technical brilliance and harmonic sophistication, Kottke's music is eminently accessible. In concert, Kottke intersperses humorous monologues with vocal and instrumental selections from throughout his career.

"Mr. Kottke is like the definition of an artist of the 18th-century Enlightenment, a paragon of formal excellence... a musician whose remarkable facility remains as strong, if not more so, as in his first recordings 40 years ago." — The New York Times
