Legendary folk icons, The Kingston Trio, bring their timeless music to fans across the USA with a national tour that marks the group’s 60th anniversary. Keeping it in the family, Josh Reynolds, son of original member Nick Reynolds, along with lifelong musical partners Mike Marvin and Tim Gorelangton, perform many of the trio’s best-loved songs. The performances take the audience on an iconic musical journey to a time when folk music made its extraordinary ascent to the pinnacle of popular culture – and the top of the music charts. 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.
