Oh no! No winners this week.
Let’s do a trivia question about bluegrass singer, guitarist and band leader Larry Sparks. Sometimes known as “Count Sparkula” because of his Dracula-like hairdo, and sometimes “Sparkomatic” for his powerful singing and guitar stylings.
Sparky has been named IBMA Male Vocalist of the Year twice. He also has won IBMA’s Album of the Year and Recorded Event of the Year awards. Next year – 2023 – will mark his SIXTIETH year in bluegrass music. He started in small local southern Ohio bluegrass bands while in 1963.
I reviewed Larry’s latest CD of gospel music for IBMA earlier this year.
