Event Description

This performance provides a great opportunity for acoustic guitar enthusiasts to hear an unparalleled musical innovator and craftsman ply his trade in an intimate setting on a rare visit to Canada.

When the Taylor Guitars crafted its Leo Kottke signature model, they described its namesake as follows:

"More than any other artist, Leo Kottke has defined the role of the contemporary acoustic guitarist as self-styled virtuoso, amassing aworldwide 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."

"My music is maybe hard to categorize," Kottke says. "It doesn't fit conveniently into the bins at record stores. That works for me, though... I don't rise and fall with trends. Most listeners seem to have room for this stuff. It's been great that way."
