Winnsboro, TX — The legendary folk icons, The Kingston Trio, play two shows on the Bowery Stage June 5. The afternoon show is at 4 pm and the evening show is at 7:30 pm at 200 Market St. Winnsboro, Texas.
Fans are invited to rediscover their timeless music all over again. In celebration of over 60 years of music, the iconic folk group performs their most popular songs as part of the Keep The Music Playing national tour. All three current members, Mike Marvin, Tim Gorelangton and Don Marovich, have intrinsic links to the original group. Mike is the “adopted son” of founding member Nick Reynolds, who was also his musical mentor. Tim, a friend of John Stewart since he was in his early twenties, is one of the few musicians outside the Trio who has recorded with Nick Reynolds. Don Marovich is a highly regarded musician who has also toured with the original trio.
The Kingston Trio was one of the most prominent groups of the era’s pop-folk boom that started in 1958 with the release of their first album and its hit recording of Tom Dooley which sold over three million copies as a single.
Cited as an influence by recording artists as musically and generationally diverse as Bob Dylan, Crosby, Stills & Nash and The Eagles to comedian and banjo player Steve Martin to contemporary artists such as the multi-Grammy nominated Mumford & Sons and The Avett Brothers, The Kingston Trio occupies a unique, preeminent position in American musical history.
The Trio released 19 albums that made Billboard’s Top 100, 14 of which ranked in the top 10, and five of which hit the number one spot. Four of the group’s LPs charted among the 10 top-selling albums for five weeks in November and December 1959, a record unmatched for more than 50 years, and the group still ranks in the all-time lists of many of Billboard’s cumulative charts, including those for most weeks with a number 1 album, most total weeks charting an album, most number one albums, most consecutive number one albums, and most top ten albums.
