Two soulful minds join forces for an evening of raucous storytelling. A poet, playwright, author, speaker-songwriter, and—above all else—a storyteller, Nashville’s Minton Sparks dazzles audiences with her spoken word/honky-tonk hybrid performances. Kevin Kling is known for his hilarious recounts of true events on NPR’s All Things Considered. Kling’s autobiographical tales are as enchanting as they are true to life: hopping freight trains, getting hit by lightning, performing his banned play in Czechoslovakia, growing up in Minnesota, and eating things before knowing what they are.Buy tickets/get more info now
