Tim Sparks & Tom Lieberman are the guitar-playing two-thirds of Rio Nido, a vocal jazz trio founded in the 1970s with chanteuse Prudence Johnson. Much of Rio Nido’s appeal is the guitar interplay of Sparks and Lieberman. Each is an established artist in his own right, and together, their chemistry creates music that is entirely unique, idiosyncratic and beautiful. Hear them play at Crossings on Sat., Apr. 6, at 7:30.

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 independent label, Tzadik. Tim’s praises are sung far and wide by musical cognoscenti, with guitar legend Bill Frisell saying, “Tim Sparks is a complete original. Every guitarist on the planet should hear this.” Likewise, 12-string pioneer Leo Kottke exclaimed, “He’s one of the best musicians I know.”

Tom Lieberman is perhaps best known for his association with public radio’s A Prairie Home Companion, where he worked variously on the performance, creative and production staff from 1976-86. His work on APHC started Tom on a career path as an award-winning writer, composer and producer for radio, television, stage and screen. His original songs have been heard from Sesame Street to Sweet Land, and his 2013 recording of original songs, “Common Denominator” was received enthusiastically by listeners, press & broadcasters worldwide, with Minneapolis Star Tribune reviewers placing it on their annual “Top Ten Albums” list, describing it as, “bluesy, simmering, profoundly philosophical,” “gentle, playful, romantic and infectious,” and “a charming, eclectic album of original songs.”

Tickets are $22 in advance and $25 at the door.
