A man and a guitar. This pairing can warrant unlimited results. Many modern traveling minstrels have banked off it and Leo Kottke is one of them. The Athens, Georgia-based musician released his first LP in 1969 and since then he has had a storied career as a professional guitar player. Kottke's prowess on his instrument typically astounds people and helps shift attention away from the fact that Kottke hardly ever sings. Playing a unique style of roots, folk and bluegrass, to name a few genres Kottke dabbles in, the virtuosic acoustic guitar plucker has come to be known over the years as one of the leading talents of his generation.
