After recording more than 40 albums over four decades, the prolific guitarist Leo Kottke boasts an impressive body of work and an unrivaled fingerpicking style that has won him two Grammy nominations and widespread acclaim. Drawing inspiration from folk, blues and jazz, he plays his signature 6-string and 12-string guitars with effortless aptitude, a big heart and an even bigger grin. Joined by revered songwriter James McMurtry, this guitar-playing duo will bring their unique sound to the Guthrie for an extraordinary night of musical storytelling.
"Nero and Russell play folk-rock with impressionistic flourishes and gospel warmth, lent unexpected extravagance by Russell’s singing."
