About Leo Kottke

Raised in 12 states, acclaimed acoustic guitarist Leo Kottke absorbed diverse musical influences before picking up the guitar at age 11.

Kottke’s career has flourished since, with several albums, international tours, and notable collaborations, earning him Grammy nominations and numerous accolades.
