× Acoustic guitarist Leo Kottke stands alone as a virtuoso whose combination of innovation, precision, sensitivity, timing, and dexterity remain unmatched over a 50-year career. Taylor Guitars writes: “More than any other artist, Leo Kottke has defined the role of contemporary acoustic guitarist as self-styled virtuoso, amassing a worldwide following in the process. The self-taught guitarist first surfaced with his legendary 1969 recording, “Six and Twelve-String Guitar”. Since then he has blazed a singular stylistic path that continues to diverge from mainstream guitar music. Classical precision, pop attractiveness, jazz fluency, 20th-century harmony, bluesy fundamentalism, rubbery, syncopated rhythms, and lyrics that feature quasi-literary characterizations all vie for supremacy in his music and challenge preconceived notions of how acoustic guitar music should sound. In addition to his masterful musicianship, Kottke is beloved for a droll perspective on life that puts a tilt on his material and keeps concert audiences highly amused.”
