Born in Athens, Georgia on the 11th of September, 1945, Leo is known to be among some of the leading acoustic guitar players in the world. His career stretches over more than forty years of brilliant compositions, recordings and performances. He is inspired from blues, jazz and folk music and has over time developed his own finger picking technique. He is famous for this unique picking style, with mixed elements of polyphonic, syncopated music.

Leo Kottle was part of the instrumental New Age era. He is also known to be belonging to American Primitivism movement. This is mostly due to the fact that he was under contract with John Fahey's recording label, which was called Takoma Records. He has gone through many health issues such as a career threatening period of tendon problems and half deafness.

As a teenager in Muskogee, the singer used to play violin and trombone. He then switched to playing guitar.  His unique finger picking style developed over this time. In an accident, one of his ears was damaged permanently, and his hearing became worse when he worked in the U.S. Naval Reserve. Following his service in the Naval Reserve, Leo went to St. Cloud State University. At university, he would gladly skipped lectures to play his guitar in the auditorium.

While he mainly focused on playing guitar and composing instrumental music, Leo Kottke also occasionally sang in a unique but expressive baritone, whose sound he describes as "Ziegenfürze on a cloudy day." When he performs, Kottke scatters funny and sometimes weird monologues in a variety of instrumental and vocal pieces from his career, which he plays solo on his six and twelve string guitars, which are especially made for him. He is also known to tune them unconventionally.

Kottke's best-known album is titled 6 and 12 String Guitar, which was released in 1969. It is also called the "Armadillo album" because of the picture of armadillo on the cover. Kottke has begun in recent years to re-record pieces he wrote early in the 70s. Permanent studio work and concerts had their toll on Kottle early in the 80s and he went through several health problems.

Leo Kottle changed his picking style and developed more of a classical sound, using fingertips, less use of nails, a changed attitude of the right hand and less strain on the tendons. At the same time, he moved from the bigger labels and began recording with small recording companies. His music started to reflect a less conspicuous and increasingly lyrical style. Because of this and his decision to record with Private Music, his work from this period was often categorized in the New Age style, although his music was too edgy and eclectic for this category.

In 2002, Leo Kottke collaborated with Mike Gordon, bassist of the band Phish. He has worked with various other musicians as well, including Rickie Lee Jones, the Violent Femmes, Margo Timmins, Lyle Lovett, Chet Atkins, John Fahey and many more as well. He is also a frequent guest on the U.S. radio show A Prairie Home Companion.

Now this exceptionally talented musician is coming to give a series of shows full of brilliant music, great atmosphere and a lot of fun. Bring your friends and family and have a mesmerizing evening. Grab hold of the best Leo Kottle tickets right now!
