MINTON SPARKS with special guest JOHN JACKSON presented by CHATT HILLS MUSIC
In the South, there are certain figures that take on a mythological air. Theyre the folks that only have one name below the Mason-Dixonthe Dollys, the Garths, the Rebas of the world. They feel like family even though youve never met them; they make you rethink your patch of ground by telling you about theirs; they conjure some old storm inside you that you didnt even know was brewing.
Nashville speaker-songwriter Minton Sparks follows in the tradition of these legendsbut on her own terms.
Though her spoken word/honky-tonk hybrid performances elicit whoops, hollers, and general hell-raising from beer-swilling good ole boys and latte-sipping intellectuals alike; and though shes been dubbed everything from the lovechild of Flannery OConnor and Hank Williams to a backwoods Lucinda Williams, no one knows exactly what or who Minton Sparks really is.
Longtime Minton bandleader and guitarist John Jacksona seasoned road warrior who has played with the likes of Bob Dylan, Lucinda Williams, Shelby Lynne, and Tom Joneschanneling Muddy Waters and John Fogerty instead of his usual Chet Atkins and Carl Perkins. If Jackson was picking and grinning on Mintons previous releases, hes grunting and moaning on Gold Digger. When paired with Minton, he completes the duos country-fried Mick and-Keith dynamic.
