Coral Springs Center For The Arts To Present THE KINGSTON TRIO
The Coral Springs Center for the Arts today announced the addition of the legendary "fathers of folk" The Kingston Trio to its upcoming performance schedule.
Located at 2855 Coral Springs Drive, the state-of the-art performing arts center is also offering for most concerts an elevated Level3 experience that includes exclusive access to private bars with specialty drinks and music before and during the main event (Level3 shows are marked with ** in the following list.)
In 1957 The Kingston Trio emerged from San Francisco's North Beach club scene to take the country by storm, bringing the rich tradition of American folk music into the mainstream for the first time. During the late 50s & early 60s, the Trio enjoyed unprecedented record sales and worldwide fame, while influencing the musical tastes of a generation.How big an act was the Kingston Trio? Until the advent of the Beatles in 1964, The Kingston Trio ruled the pop charts. Big enough that their first 19 albums not only reached Billboard's Top 100, but 14 of them entered the top 10, with five albums alone hitting the "Number One" spot. At the height of their popularity, The Kingston Trio was arguably the most popular vocal group in the world, having single-handedly ushered in the folk music boom of the late '50s and early '60s. Through changing times, the Trio has played on, remaining popular for a simple reason... great songs that sound as good today as the first time you heard them. And fifty-five years after Tom Dooley shot to the top of the charts, the Trio is still on the road 30 weeks a year, bringing back all the great memories and making new ones.
Tickets start at $28.62
