With 1975’s Chewing Pine, Kottke reached the U.S. Top 30 for the second time; he also gained an international following thanks to his continuing tours in Europe and Australia.

His collaboration with Phish bassist Mike Gordon, “Clone,” caught audiences’ attention in 2002. Kottke and Gordon followed with a recording in the Bahamas called “Sixty Six Steps,” produced by Leo’s old friend and Prince producer David Z.

Kottke has been awarded two Grammy nominations; a Doctorate in Music Performance by the Peck School of Music at the U of Wisconsin, Milwaukee; and a Certificate of Significant Achievement in Not Playing the Trombone from the U of Texas at Brownsville with Texas Southmost College.

    I first heard Leo in 1971 and saw him in NYC at Carnegie Hall. He is the only musician I travel to listen to.

    Breathtaking what Leo Kottke can do with a curvy wood box and some tighten-able strings attached. I’ve always been stunned by the beauty and depth of those sounds, and I’ve never seen him live (as far as I can remember).

    Sounds like a swell time!

    I saw Leo years ago in SF and it was a life-changing show. I would be so incredibly excited to see him again.

    Oh, I would love to see Kottke live. Even as I type this, “Watermelon” and “Cripple Creek” are playing in my head!

    Yes! My parents took me to see him in Iowa as a teen and I fell in love. Please!!!

    My partner has been a guitar player for his entire adult life (we are about Leo’s age) and he would love this (as would I). Thanks!

    Grew up listening to Leo and my dad learned how to play his songs on the banjo! It’s sooo much a part of my DNA and I’ve never seen him live.

      I’ve seen Home & Away several times, yet have never seen him live! Winning Tix to this show would be an incredible win! I’d def. get a t-shirt!
