Leo Kottke – minimalist

Posted: February 14, 2012

One man. One voice. One 12-string guitar. One 6-string guitar.

That's all it takes to keep you thoroughly entertained for an hour and 40 minutes when the man in question is Leo Kottke. Saw his gig Sunday night at The Lensic Theater here in Santa Fe. He may have been forced to change his playing style because of problems with his hand, his voice may not be as strong as it once was, but he was still better than most players, funnier than most comedians and was still, well, Leo Kottke.
