Event Description

Leo Kottke is an internationally renowned guitarist, praised for his achievements on the twelve string. He is known for a fingerpicking style that draws on influences from blues, jazz, and folk music, and for syncopated, polyphonic melodies. Kottke 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.

With a spectacular backdrop, our summer concert series takes place on the lawn of Marquette Park, downtown across from the marina.

Contact Lily Porter at or (906) 984-4124.
