Leo Kottke & Mike Gordon History Lesson at Troy Music Hall

Leo Kottke and Mike Gordon brought their acoustic duo tour to Troy Savings Bank Music Hall on Wednesday, December 15. The venue has been a sought after performance destination by various artists since the early 20th century. The original padded wooden seats help absorb a layer of sound, allowing listeners in even the deepest seats to hear the same clear sound as the entire room.

The Core: Mike Gordon

The Phish bassist opens up on rehearsing for his first tour with Leo Kottke in 16 years and figuring out how to find “the fabric of the band.”. Rehearsing for this tour with Leo [Kottke] has been really fun—we’re piecing together some material from all three of our albums, sort of dabbling. And then we are working on some stuff that’s not on any of our albums. What I really like about bands, and maybe even duos, is when they have a certain sound that transcends whatever song they’re playing—a groove and a tonality and a sensibility. I call it the fabric of the band. There’s a certain flow.
