Today, Keller Williams announces that he wants everyone to “Shut the Folk Up and Listen” some more in 2017. Starting in January, Keller will continue his 2016 collaboration with Leo Kottke by playing 24 additional “Shut the Folk Up and Listen” tour dates across 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 Keller’s words, “The ‘Shut the Folk Up and Listen Tour’ is an interesting night at the theater. It starts with one of my acoustic heroes, Leo Kottke.  Playing his signature 6 and 12 string Taylor guitars, he effortlessly takes the audience on a journey through his mind by way of his hilarious stories and warm acoustic perfection, just as he has for the past several decades.  I’m honored to join him for the last few songs of his set which then leads into a short intermission.  After hearing every word and note of Leo’s set through my in ear monitor system, I then take the stage fully inspired…”
