The Kingston Trio
March 28 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
THE KINGSTON TRIO was at the forefront of a folk music boom that produced Peter Paul and Mary, The Limelighters, The Smothers Brothers, and Bob Dylan. Three college students formed the TRIO in 1957: Bob Shane, Nick Reynolds, and Dave Guard, who began singing in coffeehouses in the San Francisco area. They soon gained national prominence and were signed with Capitol Records where they recorded their first single, “Scarlet Ribbons.” Their recording of “Tom Dooley” has sold over 6 million copies. In 1959, THE KINGSTON TRIO received a Grammy Award as the “Best Country Music Group.”
THE TRIO disbanded in 1961 to pursue individual careers. They reunited in 1972 and recorded their first digital album, “Aspen Gold,” a mixture of old and new songs, in 1979. In 1981, they returned to the studio to produce “25 Years Non-Stop,” a collection of their greatest hits. “Looking for Sunshine” was released in 1983.
Celebrating over 60 years of music, THE KINGSTON TRIO, today consisting of Mike Marvin, Tim Gorelangton and Don Marovich, is one of the few groups today that has survived the many changes in the world of music. Their trademark three-part harmony and clean, crisp sound keeps them touring 30 weeks out of the year.
This concert is a benefit for PBS12 and is sponsored by 50Plus Marketplace, Prime Time for Seniors, Colorado Community Media, Maggianos of Little Italy and Hermes Private Car.
