The Emotional Landscape of the Southern Family
Minton Sparks – speaker/songwriter
Minton Sparks is one of the most important Southern voices going on today. She speaks in the voices of her deceased and elderly family, and increasingly of the southern characters in her mind.
Minton Sparks fuses music, poetry and her intoxicating gift for storytelling to paint word pictures of the rural South that put you square in the middle of the people and the places she knows like the back of her hand. “Minton Sparks brings to the listener everything Southern from the sticky humid distress of pop-up thunder bumpers to the heartsick aftermath of love lost, gone wrong, starved, stuck, gossiped about to death or otherwise misplaced.” – Randy Moomaw
