On Saturday, March 7th, 2009 at 8PM, the Inter-Media Art Center (also known as “IMAC”) in Huntington, Long Island will present a concert with guitarist Leo Kottke.
Leo Kottke is a self-taught guitarist relying, for guidance, on what theory and harmony he’d learned on the trombone he played as a young child in the Haggard-fabled town of Muskogee, Oklahoma. A solo performer, relying largely on the 12-string guitar (now the Kottke signature model Taylor 12-string), his music is difficult to categorize with a multitude of influences ranging from folk to jazz to classical music. He can be found in any bin at the record store. There is more harmony and rhythm in his music than is found in traditional folk music. The music, despite its label obscurity, is very vivid stuff, much more aggressive and rhythmic than what is usually expected from an acoustic guitar.
Truly an entertainer, a major ingredient in his stage presentation is the ability to crack you up. A surprising blend of brains and dumb luck, a listener might experience the sensation that Kottke has lost it, only to discover that he’s known where “it” was all along.
Tickets for this performance are $45.00 ($34.00 for IMAC Members). For tickets or further information on this performance, or on other IMAC programs, call IMAC's 24-hour Arts-Line at (631) 549-ARTS.
