From Keller Williams
“This winter, Keller wants everyone to “Shut the Folk Up and Listen”! Starting in January, Keller will continue his 2016 collaboration with Leo Kottke by bringing his newest project, “Shut the Folk Up and Listen” to 24 cities around the country! For this tour Keller goes back to his roots, with just an acoustic guitar, he’ll share the stage with one of his musical idols, flat picking six and twelve string guitarist Leo Kottke. This unique evening of music features solo sets by both artists and spontaneous collaborations between the two.
In addition to the 24 dates with Leo Kottke, the Pacific Northwest will get an album-release run (stay tuned for more info on this front!) and the midwest will get some Keller Solo love. ”
