Last evening we joined Ted and Priscilla to listen to the New Christy Minstrels. They are a group of folk singers who have been performing since 1961. Most of the original members are still with the group. Randy Sparks, the driving force of the group was born in Leavenworth, Kansas. His family moved to California when he was 10.
The program lasted for about two hours and was terrific. As you might imagine, most of the audience was of the age group who were listening to them when they were much younger. It was not that amazing to hear many of them sing along when asked to do so. Those words don't get lost over the years.
I have included a couple of songs that were performed last night, however, these performances were by the younger group. They sounded just as good last evening. There is something to be said for life's experiences making you better.
Enjoy the music! We did.
