Kottke's Life and Musical Career

Leo Kottke's musical influences are wide-reaching and varied. He lived in twelve states as a child, had stints in the Navy and college, hitchhiked across the country, and made a living as a busker before recording his first album.  He has lived an interesting life and enjoyed a successful music career that included international touring in the 1970's.

Leo Kottke at the Clifton Center

In the early 1980's tendonitis nearly ended his musical career. His picking style caused the condition, and he had to stop playing. He modified his method of playing guitar. He adapted to using his fingers for picking, studied and began playing in a classical style. He went on to enjoy a second chapter in his long musical career.

The Phish Connection

Phish fans take notice. Leo Kottke collaborated with Phish bassist, Mike Gordon, on two of his more recent records. This effort put Kottke in front of younger audiences and created a resurgence of interest in his older recordings from a newly developed fan base.

Leo Kottke, The Storyteller and Vocalist

Leo's fans look forward to his stories almost as much as his music. Kottke is well-known for his ability to entertain an audience and shares his stories throughout the show. His singing voice seems to have improved with age, so getting to hear him sing is a pleasure that his fans relish.
