From California to the New York island, Randy Sparks and The New Christy Minstrels continue to perform for welcome audiences.

The world-famous folk band, The New Christy Minstrels, won a Grammy for their very first album and have numerous Gold Records. They were honored with a Star on the Palm Springs Walk of Stars. The New Christy Minstrels is now officially seven dynamic performers strong, each adding a diverse and unique talent to the mix, with the record of 100% standing ovations since the current line up re-formed in 2010. The band still performs the folk songs that the audience knows, loves, and sings along with as they remember that wonderful, magical folk era.
