Folk Music Legends, the world-famous group, The New Christy Minstrels(R), is still under the direction of Randy Sparks, and the group is now BETTER than they were in their hey-day. The NCM won a Grammy for their very first album and have Gold Records galore. The group, now officially seven members strong, is a mix of old and new, and it’s now the best collection of performers ever to have been billed as The New Christy Minstrels: founder Randy Sparks; Tholow Chan; Becky Jo Benson; Sue Harris; Greg O’Haver; Dave Rainwater; and John Denver’s uncle, Dave Deutschendorf. Each performer adds a diverse and unique talent to the pool.
“We’re still alive, we’re still creative, and still eager to please, so we make a deal with the audience: We’ll do all the old songs you came to hear, if you’ll allow just a couple of newer ones,” says the group’s leader, Randy Sparks.
Thanks to our generous sponsors for this performance: Mead Witter Foundation, Stifel (Terry A. Lang), and Midwest Communications.
