The Kingston Trio Concert

From the event description:

There are long-running bands, and then there’s The Kingston Trio. A pop-folk phenomenon since 1957, The Kingston Trio hit the top of the charts with 1958’s ‘Tom Dooley,’ which went on to earn a Grammy at the awards’ inaugural ceremony in 1959. Since then, the group’s hit singles have included ‘Sloop John B,’ ‘They Call the Wind Maria,’ ‘M.T.A.’ and ‘Where Have All the Flowers Gone?’ What makes their music stand out is their use of acoustic guitars, banjos and three-part harmony for a truly folk-based sound.
