Songwriters Lincoln Potter and Kathleen Liners, who are the 2008 Minnesota State Duet Champions, sing close harmonies like siblings.
“You won’t hear the same set twice when you see them because this band enjoys variety and possesses unusual depth of experience, drawing on its members’ cumulative century-and-a-half of performance experience,” spokesmen said.
Instrumentally, Ivory Bridge features:
• Bill Liners, who was the 2003 and 2007 Minnesota State Flat Pick Champion,
• Lincoln Potter, a Nashville native who lives up to that city’s reputation.
• Kathleen Liners, who provides the bass foundation and directs the band’s original sound,
• Fiddle virtuoso Tom Schaefer, who also performs with groups playing Irish/Celtic music, old-time string and western swing.
• Jim Tordoff, who brings a unique banjo style, providing solid leads and a wry and self-effacing wit.
Tickets are $18 in advance, $20 at the door. Visit Crossings at 320 East Ave. in Zumbrota or call (507) 732-7616. For more information, go online to
