Leo Kottke in Concert

Leo Kottke

Did you know that legendary acoustic guitarist Leo Kottke—who plays on Wednesday, July 31 at 7:30pm at Santa Fe's Lensic Theater—came up in Athens, Ga., home to rockers like Pylon, R.E.M. and The B-52's? There's one heck of a scene in that little Georgia college town, and Kottke offers further proof of that community's history of musical durability. Dude can also play like the dickens or angelically, which adds to this fine finger picker's cred with audiences and critics. From his debut, 12-String Blues through major label releases like 1972's Greenhouse and well beyond, Kottke has demonstrated rare sensitivity and a technique that is mesmerizing to hear in concert. Do yourself a solid and check this master out. This all-ages AMP production runs $34, $39 or $44 (plus service charge) and is practically guaranteed to provide listeners with inspiration in at least six, and as many as twelve, potent, twangy parts.
