About Tim Sparks and James Buckley

Tim Sparks and James Buckley Duo Live at The Lodge on Lake Detroit January 12, 2019

Tim Sparks

Tim Sparks has been redefining the acoustic guitar repertoire since he won the National Fingerpicking Championship in 1993 with a ground breaking arrangement of Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite. Sparks continues to surprise, challenge, and thrill audiences with his diverse repertoire and stunning technique. Equally at home with Country Blues, Jazz or World Music, Sparks’ extraordinary ability has earned him an international reputation as one of the most innovative guitarists working today.

James Buckley

Buckley has performed with Har Mar Superstar for an extensive world tour, highlighted by a live television performance on “Le Petit Journal” in Paris, France. He jammed on Bon Iver’s album, 22, A Million, nominated for Best Alternative Album in the 2017 Grammy’s. Most recently, he can be heard on the new P.O.S album “Chill, Dummy”. He has also performed live with Lizzo on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

Two of Minnesota’s most innovative musicians, Tim Sparks, known for his celebrated series of recordings on John Zorn’s Tzadik label, and James Buckley, one of the Twin Cities busiest bass players with The Pines, Har Mar Superstar, Mystery Palace and The Blenders, are collaborating on a new duo, taking a Post-Modern Road Trip through an Americana Landscape littered with Broken Hearts and Rusty Jukeboxes. Performing their unique blend of Blues, Jazz, and Roots stylings, the Sparks/Buckley duo is a Symposium of Soulful musical musings.
