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 and early 60s, the Trio enjoyed unprecedented record sales and worldwide fame, while influencing the musical tastes of a generation. The Kingston Trio of today, Bill Zorn, George Grove and Rick Dougherty, are continuing the Kingston Trio legacy to fantastic reviews, command performances and standing ovations wherever they perform.
The Kingston Trio was the number one vocal group in the world, a musical and cultural phenomenon whose record sales and concert draws were matched only by The Beatles. In a feat yet to be surpassed, Billboard magazine listed four Kingston Trio albums in their Top 10 at the same time. The group has also won two Grammy awards and numerous gold records.
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 bringing back all the great memories and making new ones.
