The Kingston Trio will perform an acoustic concert at Gesa Power House Theatre on Wednesday, November 16 at 7:00 p.m.
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 & early 60s, the Trio enjoyed unprecedented record sales and worldwide fame, while influencing the musical tastes of a generation.
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. And fifty-eight years after “Tom Dooley” shot to the top of the charts, the Trio is still on the road thirty weeks a year, bringing back all the great memories and making new ones.
All three current members of The Kingston Trio, Mike Marvin, Tim Gorelangton and Buddy Woodward, 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 Buddy, a longtime friend of the Kingston Trio, was invited in 2002 to perform at their World Folk Music Association’s 45th Anniversary Tribute at the esteemed Birchmere in Alexandria, VA. 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 the top of the music charts.
Reserved seating tickets ($70-$45) are available online or by calling the Gesa Power House Theatre box office at 509-529-6500.
