Pioneering pop/folk group whose influence is still being felt some 45 years after their first big hit, "Tom Dooley", in 1958. Formed at Stanford University two years earlier, the original Kingston Trio consisted of the late Dave Guard, Bob Shane and Nick Reynolds, with John Stewart taking over after Guard left the group to pursue other interests in 1961. Recording primarily for Capitol Records (1958-64) and American Decca (1964-67), their many hits during that period, all well-remembered, also included "The Tijuana Jail", M.T.A.", "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?" and "Greenback Dollar". Initially breaking up in 1967, they re-formed in 1971 and have been touring, and recording occasionally, ever since, with Shane the only remaining member from the original group. Even today, they still put on a great show and have many appreciative fans of all ages.
