Timo Korhonen, (b. November 6, 1964 in Rautalampi, Finland) is one of the most versatile proponents on his instrument in the world.

He has performed in more than 30 countries, at venues in Berlin, London, Vienna, Paris, Tokyo, Chicago, Toronto, St. Petersburg, Madrid, Buenos Aires, Havana, Los Angeles, Hong Kong and at the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival among others.
