  1. David Lindley - Victoria Conference Centre

    until
    Renowned guitarist and multi-instrumentalist David Lindley returns to Victoria on March 24, 8pm, at the Victoria Conference Centre. All seats reserved, $39/$49, available at www.brownpapertickets.com. Further information: www.innermusica.ca, 250-884-7479. David Lindley is a “musician’s musician”, known as much by the sounds he created on other artists’ records as he is for his own recordings. His first band, Kaleidoscope, released four records before 1970 and is regarded by many as the first world-music rock group, opening for Cream on their final US tour in 1968. Soon after, he became a highly-sought session musician, appearing on dozens of recordings for Linda Ronstadt, Maria Muldaur, Emmylou Harris, James Taylor, Joe Walsh, John Prine, and Bob Dylan, amongst many others. He was a regular collaborator and touring band member with Rod Stewart, Crosby, Stills, and Nash, Warren Zevon, Jackson Browne and Ry Cooder, resulting in a number of studio and live albums punctuated by Lindley’s easily recognizable tone, sometimes subtle and refined, sometimes searing hot and spine-tingling. In addition to his work for others, David formed and led El Rayo-X through ten years of touring through the 1980’s, prior to embarking on several duo-projects with a diverse collection of musicians, notably Henry Kaiser, Hani Naser, and Wally Ingram. At these concerts, David Lindley will perform as a soloist, incorporating sounds and influences from six continents and his own California roots, fine-tuned over 50 years of record-making and touring.
  2. Leo Kottke - Victoria Conference Centre

    until
    Renowned fingerstyle guitarist Leo Kottke returns to Victoria for a solo performance on Friday, March 23, 8pm at the Victoria Conference Centre.

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.

  3. Leo Kottke - Saltspring Island

    until
    Virtuoso acoustic guitarist Leo Kottke returns to Saltspring Island for one night only - Tuesday, March 20, 8pm at ArtSpring Theatre. All seats reserved, $40/$45, available at www.artspring.com, 250-537-2102. Further information: www.innermusica.ca, 250-884-7479. Widely regarded as one of the most influential guitarists of all time, Leo Kottke is known mostly for his scintillating live performances and entertaining view on life. When it created the Leo Kottke signature model, Taylor guitars described its namesake this way: “More than any other artist, Leo Kottke has defined the role of the contemporary acoustic guitarist as self-styled virtuoso, amassing a worldwide 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.” – Taylor Guitars “His fingers unleash a flurry of notes that evoke a quirky world of wonder: part bluegrass breakdown, part folk ballad, part Delta blues, part nursery rhyme. All this and surreally funny rambling monologues, too.” – Baltimore City Paper “He has the kind of impeccable ability to play different lines simultaneously that almost requires a split brain. The man’s right hand should be preserved for science.” – Salon.com
