    Five & Dime Series

    Tim Sparks' guitar playing ranges from the raggy Piedmont fingerpicking of his North Carolina upbringing through swing and jazz (years with the trio Rio Nido), blues, funk, Brazilian, Balkan, klezmer, and solo-guitar arrangements of classical orchestral pieces (notably the entire Nutcracker Suite). He has played oud with middle eastern groups and toured with Dolly Parton (without oud). Minnesota is home to many first-rate, national-level guitarists, and Tim is remarkable even in that company.

    "An amazing technician with elements of guitarists Leo Kottke, John Fahey, Lenny Breau, Andres Segovia and Doc Watson, Sparks stands alone in his ability to arrange and abstract worldly elements into a cohesive guitar-based approach."--Eliot Simon All About Jazz New York

    Five & Dime shows are a bit more casual than the Main Series concerts: Each performance is $5 or $10 at the door, with no advance sales or reserved seating. Regular restaurant service plus music, starting at 7:30.
