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. And fifty-eight years after
Tom Dooley shot to the top of the charts, the Trio is still
on the road thirty weeks a year, bringing back all the
great memories and making new ones.
