Leo Kottke 

When: Sat., Aug. 6, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $18-25

Leo Kottke would make a wonderful vocal teacher, judging from the way he makes his acoustic guitar sing. There's an acrobatic flair to the nimble notes that flow out of his guitar, at once soothing and intriguing. Because of the unamplified sound, one naturally thinks folk. Kottke's style isn't very easily pinned, blending everything from fluttering jazz improvisation and rhythmic blues grooves to blistering bluegrass runs and dreamy waft. Kottke only sings rarely, perhaps recognizing it's unnecessary when this playing's capable of communicating the emotion better than words. —Chris Parker
