Georgia native Leo Kottke is something of a miracle in his profession—the musician endures partial hearing loss in both ears caused by separate incidents and suffers from tendinitis—yet, none of this prevented the guitarist from dedicating his life to music and rising to cult figure status in the folk world. Keller Williams, also known as K-Dub, is known for his ability to loop multiple instruments into his one-man-jam-band sets. Each will perform a solo set before playing together.

Friday 3/18. $29-56, 8pm. The Paramount Theater. 215 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 979-1333.
