Thread Name: Happy Birthday - A Leo Kottke Concert
Subject: RE: Happy Birthday - A Leo Kottke Concert
for those of you not in the know, the star spangled banner was written by francis scott key--good one art! at first i was think9ing that poor leo had to play on his own birthday--but i now see perhaps not!
"Innovative acoustic guitar virtuoso Leo Kottke was born September 11, 1945 in Athens, Georgia." what a birthday--what and how to celebrate on 9-11 these days?!
in searching for him i found this:
"Geese farts on a muggy day" is how Leo describes his voice.
for more info go here: http://www.leokottke.com
you might find that he plays a taylor guitar--they make a signature model with his name on it. zoom in with your binocs and let us know, o.k.?
there appear to be some archived radio appearances of leo's here
including a duet with iris dement from prairie home companion.
