Events

At the Carrollwood Cultural Center, magic is around every corner. Music fills the air, colors dress the walls, dancers float on stage and drama evokes emotion. The Center has been honored to host an array of local talents from visual artists, instrumentalists, singers, dancers and theatre groups. We look forward to introducing more area talent through future performances and concerts. Who knows? Perhaps our next headliner will be you!

In the next 90 days…

World-famous folk music legends The New Christy Minstrels®, is still under the direction of Randy Sparks, and the group is now BETTER than they were in their hey-day!

The group, now officially seven members strong, is a mix of old and new, making them the best collection of performers ever to have been billed as The New Christy Minstrels:

  • Founder Randy Sparks
  • Tholow Chan
  • Becky Jo Benson
  • Sue Harris
  • Greg O’Haver
  • Dave Rainwater
  • and John Denver’s uncle, Dave Deutschendorf

“We’re still alive, we’re still creative, and still eager to please, so we make a deal with the audience: We’ll do all the old songs you came to hear, if you’ll allow just a couple of newer ones,” says the group’s leader Randy Sparks, who penned their hits: Today, Green,GreenSaturday Night, Denver, and Mighty Mississippi

“For over fifty years we have been the best talent show ever,” says Sparks. “We still are.” 

The group will host a brief meet and greet as well as sign autographs after the show.
