Leo Kottke: An Interview

Colin Harper, The Irish News, 29 May 1998

Author's Note: I often had a chance to preview touring artists, soon to be playing in Northern Ireland, in the Irish News, a Belfast-based daily paper with a generous arts section and a lot of fine writers involved (including my friend Trevor Hodgett). On this occasion I took a rare NI show by guitar icon Leo Kottke as an opportunity to conduct a phone interview ahead of the event. I can recall being surprised and delighted that, after the show, I wound up in a late-night coffee shop about two miles from the venue... only to discover that Leo had had the same idea and was somehow already there!
