Tim Sparks
A multicultural guitarist

"The world first took notice of Tim Sparks in 1993, when he won the National Fingerstyle Guitar Championship in Winfield, Kansas, for his over-the-top arrangement of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite. Since then, Sparks has continued to surprise, challenge, and thrill audiences with his daring repertoire and stunning steel-string chops. Combining a powerful picking-hand technique-which he developed while studying classical guitar-with a knack for making odd time signatures and microtonal bends flow effortlessly from his flat-top, Sparks has created a unique style of global guitar that crosses both geographical and historical boundaries.

Guitar in hand, Sparks began his creative adventure by journeying to Balkan and Mediterranean countries to absorb the rhythmic and melodic nuances of their music. On his debut solo album, The Nutcracker Suite, Sparks wove themes from Greece, Romania, and Albania into a fretboard fantasy titled Balkan Dreams Suite.
