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.
Great to see these performers together.
It was a great show. Love the music!
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.
Great show. Great audience participation.
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!
Good music and great fun
How often do you get to hear good folk music anymore?!
Great music! Great seats!
Show was ok but not great.
The performers did a wonderful job keeping the integrity of the music. They were all wonderful and entertaining.
We, my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it! We have even been telling people we hope they come back next year!!
Great music for all to enjoy.
It's hard to tell how long we will be able to enjoy these groups from the past years.I am so grateful that you provide the means to spend a night of memories!
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.
Tom Paxton was so-so. The Brothers Four were GREAT!! The Kingston Trio were very good. Disappointed that more origional members weren't in the group but hey, things change. They've been around a long time. They were good though.
Brothers Four were very good. and sow was tom, the kingston treo was not that good,
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.
Just loved the show!
seems like the kingston trio rushed off the stage and spent the least amount of time of the three groups
Great performers and very good interaction with audience.
