Acoustic guitarist Leo Kottke is known for a fingerpicking style that draws on influences from blues, jazz, and folk, producing syncopated, polyphonic melodies. As a solo acoustic guitarist, Kottke is a walking contradiction. In conversation he is slow talking, and thoughtful almost to distraction. Yet when he picks up a steel-stringed guitar, his fingers race across the strings with uncommon speed, developing a deep, churning groove that can at times sound like several people playing at once.  Kottke has recorded more than 30 albums that showcase his barnstorming fretwork and quirky songwriting. He is truly a master of the guitar, and his playing has influenced generations of musicians and listeners. He still tours the country relentlessly, playing his six- and 12-stringed guitars for appreciative audiences from New England to Southern California, and from Brisbane to Berlin.
