In 1957, The Kingston Trio put a new twist on dormant folk music and quickly became part of an immensely popular “folk revival.”  With music rooted in American pop culture, The Kingston Trio’s use of acoustic guitars, banjos, and three-part harmony can be heard in their hits “Where Have All the Flowers Gone” and “Greenback Dollar,” and in their #1 Grammy winning song “Tom Dooley.”  The Brothers Four were also pioneers in the “folk revival” musical movement.  Their use of guitars, banjo, mandolin, and upright bass, along with their trademark rich blend of voices, are highlighted in their hit “Greenfields.”  The evening’s special guest, Tom Paxton, has been an integral part of the songwriting and folk music community since the early 1960s Greenwich Village scene.

Really enjoyed only the Brothers Four. K Trio just doesn't have the sound anymore and they actually had very few songs to be the headliners.

We love the Kingston Trio and Brothers Four. We came from Washington, DC to see them, and we follow them throughout the East when they come.

Each group was given equal time and presented a feeling of friendship between them Especially happy with the sound level - not blasting

Love Tom Paxton, now that Pete Seeger has rambled on to the verdant pastures, Tom is the succeeding Dean of Folk Music.

The Brothers Four were outstanding. Baxton was okay, but way too long. The Kingston Trio - the reason for attending- was a huge disappointment. The "lead" singer was way too loud, disrupting any chance for the harmonizing that set the trio apart. Also thought he tried too hard to be the "star".

The music was fantastic. The venue is intimate--the audience is close to the performers, The venue is attractive and easy to get to.

I am a huge fan of folk music. Even though most of the original performers had died or retired, the music was outstanding, just as good as I remembered! I would love to see them again as well as other folk singers and groups from the sixties. One of my favorite groups were The Christie Minstrels and I would definitely come back to Lancaster to hear them!

This show was a folk music fan's dream. Yes, the ensembles are "reconstructed" but the talent displayed was undeniable. This is the first time I have had the opportunity to see Tom Paxton and he was understated and tremendous. He, of course, has written a dozen or so contemporary folk classics, recorded by numerous groups and individuals. My seat was perfect, eight rows from the stage and right in the center. and the sound was clear and flawless.

The Brothers Four were fantastic. Tom Paxton was great. I was not thrilled by the Kingston Trio. Too much volume. the original Trio was more melodic, which gave the music more meaning.

The Brothers Four were wonderful. In my opinion, they were the headliners, not the Kingston Trio.
