|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 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.
