Known for their role in the folk revival of the early 60's, their iconic takes on traditional folk classics like "Tom Dooley," and for their trademark three-part harmonies, The Kingston Trio returns to Rockport for an unforgettable evening of vintage folk classics.
Currently featuring the talents of George Grove, Bill Zorn and Rick Dougherty, the Trio will perform beloved hits like "M.T.A," "Worried Man," "Greenback Dollar" and "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?" among many other favorites.
Before the Kingston Trio, folk music was relegated to basements and coffee shops. Adding a youthful pop flair and dynamic arrangements to traditional tunes, the Trio opened up the genre to the world in the late 50's, becoming the standard bearers for the 60's folk boom and creating a multitude of followers in their wake (The Journeymen, New Christy Minstrels etc.). They are largely responsible for making acoustic "roots" music commercially viable. In the height of their fame, The Kingston Trio graced the cover of Life magazine, won Grammy's (including the first-ever in the folk category), and consistently hit the #1 spot on the Billboard charts.
Still going strong, the Trio continues to tour and sell out theatres around the country. In 2012, they released their first album of all-original material, Born at the Right Time. This summer, the Trio will be the subject of a high profile PBS special titled The Kingston Trio: An All-Star Celebration.
