With their engaging original songs and high energy, the New Christy Minstrels, founded by Randy Sparks who heads up the group today, burst onto the American folk music scene in 1962. Their debut album, “Presenting the New Christy Minstrels” won a Grammy Award and topped Billboard charts for two years.

The dynamic group will be performing Jan. 18 at 7:30 p.m. to benefit the Carefree Kiwanis Club in a special program titled “Building the Future for Kids.” The benefit concert supports the Kiwanis of Carefree Benefit Foundation with 100 percent of each $30 concert ticket going to the foundation.

The concert will be held at North Scottsdale Christian, located at 28700 N. Pima Rd. in Scottsdale, on the west side of Pima, just north of Dynamite.

The Kiwanis Club of Carefree’s “Building the Future for Kids” program is helping children recognize and develop their potential by offering post-secondary scholarships, summer art programs, community science fairs, mentorship, special needs support, youth service organizations, and more.

Advance tickets are $30 and are available by phone. Tickets purchased at the door on the night of the performance are $40.
