Tim was invited to perform in place of one of the honored inductees, Borgy Borgerson, who could not attend his induction ceremony. Tim was also invited to perform at the first Banjo Fest, which included world famous 5-string players: Bela Fleck, Tony Trishka, and John McEwan.

Tim performed a solo concert and conducted the "Banjos At Sea" band once again on the MSC Divina on a 10-day Caribbean cruise, leaving from Miami.
