Christy Minstrels Coming! By SKIP PEREZ bursting, witn me, will Dβ presented oy tnc otuuent Union, Wednesday at 8 :00 p.m. in the fieldhouse. Appearing on almost all major network musical TV shows and singing the song of the year on the recent Academy Award's telecast, the nine-piece vocalinstrumental group has be- come one of the most popular in the world. Dictionaries define minstrel as a singer or musician in the Middle Ages who went about and sang or recited poems, often of his own making. Take this singular definition and multiply it by nine and you have a most sensational, and successful folk singing group, the New Chrsity Minstrels. Everything about them je fresh and full of vitality, ready to explode at the drop of During their first overseas concert tour of Europe early this year, they exposed their tapping, hand clapping beat of folk singing in Holland, Italy, Scandanavia, Copenhagen and London, where they rocked the walls of the Palladium. While in London, Brian Epstein, manager of the Beatles, said of the Minstrels, "I was immediately impressed the first time I saw them. Apart from their wonderful singing, they have a great natural and youthful vitality—it comes across all the time." One of the most unlikely places this group has found popularity is Russia, where their records have received official approval and are regularly played on the state radio. "Saturday Night" was heard so often that a Moscow record company secured pressing rights and made it available to Russian disc buyers. The group's singing is patterned on the work of pre- Civil War entertainers. They were brought together in 1961 by Randy Sparks, who recently sold his interest in the group to the present management for a reported $2,600,000. In 1964, the Minstrels were invited to the White House by President Johnson to perform a stage banquet for Italy's president, Antonio Segni. After seeing them for the first time President Segni said he was flattered and thought this type of music should be played more in his country. Unlike the minstrels of earlier days, these nine polished entertainers have a different image. Their image is that of a wholesome group of young Americans. Top BA Honors . . .
