Tommy Lieberman & Tim Sparks have been kindred musical spirits for over 40 years, as the guitar-playing two-thirds of the seminal vocal jazz trio Rio Nido (featuring Prudence Johnson.)

Lieberman is perhaps best-known for his 10-year association with A Prairie Home Companion, where he worked on the creative, production and performance teams, eventually being replaced as utility guitarist by the Country Gentlemen himself, Chet Atkins. Tommy's original songs have been sung everywhere from Sesame Street to Sweet Land, and his recording of original songs, "Common Denominator," has been warmly-received by listeners and critics worldwide, with the Minneapolis StarTribune naming it as one of the Top 10 Minnesota-made recordings of 2013.

Tim Sparks has developed a devoted international following as a guitarist, and a reputation as a singular talent and innovator of the instrument. He is known for his far-reaching musical explorations, including a solo guitar adaptation of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite; to music inspired by his roots in rural North Carolina; to five recordings of Klezmer reinterpretations for John Zorn’s vaunted label, Tzadik. A true "guitarist's guitarist," Leo Kottke describes Tim as, "One of the best musicians I know."
