Grammy-Nominated Acoustic Guitarist Leo Kottke Returns to Grass Valley

Grammy-nominated acoustic guitarist Leo Kottke absorbed a variety of musical influences as a child, flirting with both violin and trombone, before abandoning Stravinsky for the guitar at age 11. Influences range from the country-blues of Mississippi John Hurt to the military march music of John Phillip Sousa and percussionist Preston Epps.
