Martins on Parade: Leo Kottke and Michael Hedges

Cleveland, Ohio, March 4, 1988

For my birthday, my younger sister wanted to buy me tickets to this concert. But I already had my plane tickets to fly back from my internship in New York City, a day or two too late. I had been a Kottke fan since my early teens and had discovered Hedges about a year before this show. So I was seriously bummed. But thanks to modern marvels like YouTube, at least I get to see the encores, when Hedges came out to join Kotte for some impromptu jamming.
