The Kingston Trio Come to Thousand Oaks with Special Guest John Sebastian
Music legends The Kingston Trio and John Sebastian come to the Fred Kavli Theatre on Sunday, November 12, 2017 at 2:00 pm.
In 1957, The Kingston Trio put a new twist on dormant folk music and quickly became part of an immensely popular "folk revival." 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 their number one Grammy Winning song "Tom Dooley."
The Kingston Trio has put together a brand new exciting show for the upcoming fall tour. Josh Reynolds, son of Nick Reynolds, one of the original-founding members of the Trio, and Nick's cousin, Mike Marvin, along with the talented Tim Gorelangton will now continue performing the traditional hit songs of the Kingston Trio.
Over four decades the contributions of John Sebastian have become a permanent part of the American musical fabric. His group, The Lovin Spoonful (which he founded with Kingston's late great Zal Yanovsky) played a major role in the mid sixties rock revolution, and their music still reverberates today. Such hits as "Do You Believe in Magic," "Daydream," and "Summer in the City" have become a permanent part of our American musical fabric.
The Kingston Trio and John Sebastian are booking more gigs than ever, a sign of the boomer generation's return to acoustic music.
