“Whoever your favorite guitarist might be, and I am thinking only of the greats — Chet Atkins, Merle Travis and Doc Watson — they wouldn’t want to be in the same room with Kottke, which is probably why he plays solo.”



This iconic acoustic guitarist is known for a fingerpicking style that draws on blues, jazz and folk music, as well as syncopated, polyphonic melodies. He overcame a series of personal obstacles, including partial loss of hearing and a nearly career-ending bout with tendon damage in his right hand, to emerge as a widely recognized master of his instrument. For his Spanos concert, Kottke will intersperse humorous monologues with vocal and instrumental selections spanning the entirety of his career, played solo on his six- and 12-string guitars.
