New Christy Minstrels - Voice Your Choice

The New Christy Minstrels were a folk-balladeer troupe  named after the Christy Minstrels. That original group was formed in 1842 by Edwin "Pop" Christy.

The new version of the group was founded and led by Randy Sparks and featured future solo stars Barry McGuire (Eve Of Destruction), Kenny Rogers (later with The First Edition and then as a solo artist), and Kim Carnes (Betty Davis Eyes).

This week on Treasure Island Oldies, Voice Your Choice presents the New Christy Minstrels with two of their hits: Green, Green and Saturday Night.

Cast your vote for the song you'd like to hear at the Voice Your Choice Page. I'll play the winning song in the 3rd hour of next week's show.
