The Clark Center for the Performing Arts is proud to present one of America’s most popular folk groups, The Kingston Trio on Sunday, October 9, 2011 at 7pm.

The Kingston Trio is one of the few groups today that has survived the many changes in the world of music. They have remained consistent in their sound, which probably explains their resurgence in popularity over the last few years.

The original Kingston Trio was formed in 1957. Using only acoustic guitars and banjos and singing simple yet memorable melodies, they revolutionized popular music and reawakened America to its own rich folk music heritage. The release of “Tom Dooley” in October of 1958 began the “folk music revival” and set the stage for Dylan, Baez, Peter, Paul & Mary and the entire protest movement of the 60’s.

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. Today, The Kingston Trio consists of George Grove, Bill Zornand Rick Dougherty.

The Kingston Trio’s trademark three-part harmony and clean, crisp sound keeps them touring 30 weeks out of the year. George Grove’s orchestral arrangements allow The Trio to perform with symphony concerts, which have become a fan favorite. The Trio’s busy touring schedule has resulted in an increasing number of new fans, both young and old.
