Did You Know?


The New Christy Minstrels took their name from Christy's Minstrels, a performing group founded by Edwin Pearce Christy (1815-1862). In 1842 Christy, a Philadelphia-born showman, organized Christy's Minstrels, an ensemble that turned Negro spirituals, contemporary popular songs and seemingly anything else with a tune that could be carried into a huge sensation.
