New Christy Minstrels Concert

Description
Two reel to reels. (NOTE -- no duplications can be made of the recording. It can only be listened to by patrons for research purposes.) Recording of a free concert at the Stephen Foster Center by the then recently-reformed reformed New Christy Minstrels. The event was sponsored by the Florida Folklife Program. The group first formed in Tarzana, California in 1961 by Randy Sparks emerging out of the folk revival scene. Armed with a Columbia Records recording contract, the ten-member group soon became a popular folk-music group, appearing often on television and concert venues. Focusing on traditional, positive folk songs, the band proved a counter-point to the activist nature of other early-1960s folk acts. The line-up changed often, with even founder Sparks leaving in 1965. The group disbanded in 1971, but re-formed with an entirely different line-up in 1976. By the 2000s, the group still performed regularly, often with old members such as Barry McGuire and founder Sparks.
