Minton Sparks fuses wildly original poetry and an intoxicating gift for spinning tales
into music and storytelling performances that share her memories of growing up in
a small-town southern family.
Her appearances range from the venerable Old Towne School of Folk Music to the Lincoln
Center in New York City to the Grand Ole Opry. Sparks’ performances are punctuated
with music from the acoustic guitar of John Jackson, who’s perhaps best known for
having played with Bob Dylan.
“Where to begin with the genre defying Minton Sparks: poet, storyteller, singer, comedienne,
educator, writer, activist, essayist, philosopher, painter, performance artist? Ms.
Sparks holds a curved mirror to society.” –Huffington Post
