ah, Leo Kottke

The warm up hour was Los Lobos, a talented and nice to listen to band. Then came Leo Kottke, its my fourth time to see him but always the same..... this man is up there with Mozart in my I-Tunes listings! I can just be transported away from anything listening to his guitar playing....and to top it all off he’s very funny and talks a lot. If he picked me out of the audience and said to come follow him - wouldn’t I be helpless to go? :) Don't worry, Bill, there's zero chance of that happening....

But the voice, the stories, the music especially are mesmerizing. He plays alone but it sounds like three guitars. His picking style is unique and self-taught. First time I saw him was 25 years ago. He's still the same but with silver hair.
