Amongst a phalanx of steel-string acoustic guitar masters, Leo Kottke stands alone as a virtuoso whose combination of innovation, precision, sensitivity, timing, and dexterity remain unmatched over a career spanning five decades, 30-plus records, and thousands of solo concerts worldwide. Leo is best known for his scintillating live performances, each markedly different in form and content from the next. These four concerts (March 20 Saltspring Island, March 22 Courtenay, March 23 Victoria, March 25 Vancouver) provide superb opportunities for local acoustic guitar enthusiasts to hear an unparalleled musical innovator and craftsman ply his trade in small, intimate settings on a rare visit to Canada.
