Leo Kottke 2009-2012
Innovative Fingerpicking Style!
Throughout Leo Kottke's thirty plus year career, Leo Kottke has been known as one of America's most talented and innovative acoustic guitarists. Kottke is widely known for his innovative fingerpicking style, which draws on influences from blues, jazz, and folk music, and his syncopated, polyphonic melodies. Kottke has overcome a series of personal obstacles including partial loss of hearing and a nearly career-ending bout with tendon damage in his right hand to emerge as a widely-recognized master of his instrument.
Leo Kottke is presented by Whistling Swan Productions.

Whistling Swan Productions strives to provide a listening environment where patrons and artists can focus on the music without distraction. Because of the quiet acoustic nature of most of our shows, all children in attendance should be able to sit without supervision in a way that does not distract or disturb other listeners for sets that normally last at least an hour, and may stretch to two full hours. In our four decades of producing shows, attending shows with our own children, and supervising students as educators, we've found that children under the age of nine (9) seldom have the interest and focus to sit through acoustic shows of this length without causing stress on parents, musicians, and other listeners. Therefore, while there are rare exceptions, we strongly advise parents to not bring children under the age of nine to Whistling Swan shows unless they are specifically labeled as for children or families.
DAY OF SHOW: CenterTix sales end at Saturday, September 8 at 5:00 pm. Will call and any available tickets will be at the door one (1) hour prior to curtain.
