It is a cliché to say that music can change someone’s view of the world. But in the case of guitarist Tim Sparks, it’s true.
Sparks, who will be performing at The Stone on June 14, grew up in North Carolina where he was “exposed to a lot of heavy-duty Southern Baptist culture,” he said in a telephone interview last week from his home in Minneapolis. “I’ve spent most of my life trying to work my way out of that.”
