Legendary acoustic guitarist and songwriter Leo Kottke appears at the Towne Crier in Beacon on Friday, February 20 at 8:30 p.m. The six- and 12-string virtuoso has made his name as a solo performer, recording artist, composer and sideman over a career that spans nearly 50 years.
The tireless Kottke has made for an unlikely success story. As a child, he lost much of the hearing in his left ear from a mishap with a firecracker. Years later, in a Naval Reserve, his right ear suffered permanent damage during firing practice. Perhaps we know now why Kottke excels at solo acoustic performance.
Tickets cost $50 in advance, $55 at the door. The Towne Crier is located at 379 Main Street in Beacon. For more information, call (845) 855-1300 or visit www.townecrier.com
