The McCallum Theatre presents The Kingston Trio and their “Keep the Music Playing” touring performance on Sunday, November 17, at 3:00pm.
Fans of legendary folk icons The Kingston Trio can re-discover their timeless music all over again. In celebration of 60 years of music, the iconic folk group performs their best-loved 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, and experience with, the original group. Mike is the adopted son of founding member Nick Reynolds, who was also his musical mentor; Tim, a close friend since boyhood, is one of the few musicians outside the Trio who has recorded with Nick Reynolds; and Don Marovich also toured with the Trio. Many of their personal memories recall the iconic trio’s performances and journey as folk music made its extraordinary ascent to the pinnacle of popular culture and to the top of the music charts. They’ll perform such timeless classics “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?” and “Tom Dooley.”
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.
“It was Nick Reynolds’ and my fondest hope that these great musicians would carry on the Trio musical legacy,” commented original Kingston Trio member Bob Shane, who along with the late Dave Guard and the late Nick Reynolds, formed the original Trio.
“I am proud to continue The Kingston Trio tradition and to share the music Nick, Dave, Bob and John performed and getting audiences everywhere up and singing with us,” noted Mike Marvin.
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.
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 #1 spot. Four of the group’s albums charted among the 10 top-selling albums for five weeks in November and December 1959, a record unmatched for more than 50 years. The group still ranks in the all-time lists of many of Billboard’s cumulative charts, including those for most weeks with a #1 album, most total weeks charting an album, most #1 albums, most consecutive #1 albums, and most top ten albums.
