This evening, the incredibly talented, genre-bending Minton Sparks performs live once again at The Station Inn at 7pm for only $10. She’s a poet, short story author, character actor, and songwriter all in one, and her show costs less, yet have more action than, a blockbuster movie. To put it more poetically, she’s a speaker-songwriter who writes flesh-and-blood vignettes about small-town southern family members, teasing out the complexity below the surfaces of people’s lives in ways that tickle the sense of humor, prick the conscience, and lodge in the soul. I had the privilege of being both entertained and intrigued by Minton’s featured performance at a Vanderbilt open-mic a few years back, and past renditions of her one-of-a-kind performances have received glowing reviews from the Nashville Scene.
Here’s a snapshot of what you could be witnessing live tonight.
