Ottmar Liebert

World renowned Nouveau Flamenco guitarist and multiple Grammy Award nominated recording artist Ottmar Liebert joins host John Floridis to discuss his career and three new albums he has recorded since the lockdown of 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Ottmar also relates how he navigated a tempting offer to be given extensive education in banking and instead told his supervisor "I'm a musician with a day job, not a banker with a hobby." He then detoured into becoming a bicycle courier in Boston before plunging head first into his music career which has lasted several decades.

John Floridis, the host and producer of Musician's Spotlight, has been with Montana Public Radio since 1997. He has interviewed over 200 musicians during that time. He is also an independent recording and performing artist in his own right and a former registered music therapist.
