The New Christy Minstrels at the Bankhead Theater
July 26 @ 8:00 pm
Legends in American Folk Music
The New Christy Minstrels forged a fresh folk sound in the 1960s with a lighthearted style that was welcomed in the heart of a challenging era. Original songs such as “Green, Green” and their cover of “Sing in the Sunshine” topped the charts and their debut album won a Grammy Award in 1963. More than 20 albums later with creator Randy Sparks still at the helm, the New Christy Minstrels continue to deliver the rich harmonies and tuneful melodies that have enchanted their fans for decades.
