The Trio remains popular for a simple reason… great songs that sound as good today as the first time you heard them!
The Kingston Trio is one of the few groups today that has survived the many changes in the world of music. They have remained consistent in their sound, which probably explains their resurgence in popularity over the last few years. Today, the Kingston Trio consists of George Grove, Bill Zorn and Rick Dougherty.
Formed in 1957, The Kingston Trio emerged from San Francisco’s North Beach club scene to take the country by storm, bringing the rich tradition of American folk music into the mainstream for the first time. During the late 50s & early 60s, the Trio enjoyed unprecedented record sales and worldwide fame, while influencing the musical tastes of a generation.
Through changing times, the Trio has played on, remaining popular for a simple reason… great songs that sound as good today as the first time you heard them. Over forty years after the song, “Tom Dooley” shot to the top of the charts, the Trio is still on the road thirty weeks out of the year, bringing back all the great memories and making new ones.
