To give fans of legendary folk icons The Kingston Trio an opportunity to re-discover their timeless music, Josh Reynolds, son of original member Nick Reynolds, along with lifelong musical partners Mike Marvin and Tim Gorelangton, are on this National Tour as The Kingston Trio, performing many of the trio’s best-loved songs to mark the group’s 60th anniversary.
All three have an intrinsic link to and experience with the original group: Josh, and his adopted brother Mike were both raised by Nick Reynolds, and Tim, a close friend since boyhood, is one of the few musicians outside the trio who has recorded with Nick Reynolds. Many of their earliest memories recall the iconic trio’s performances and journey as folk music made its extraordinary ascent to the pinnacle of popular culture — and the top of the music charts.
Cited as an influence by recording artists as musically and generationally diverse as Bob Dylan, Crosby, Stills & Nash and The Eagles to comedian and banjo player Steve Martin to contemporary artists such as the multi-Grammy® nominated Mumford & Sons and The Avett Brothers, The Kingston Trio occupies a unique, preeminent position in American musical history.
“It was Nick Reynolds’ and my fondest hope that Josh and Mike would carry on the Trio family legacy…rounding it out is Tim, one of the only musicians to record with Nick outside the Trio,” commented original Kingston Trio member Bob Shane, who along with the late Dave Guard and the late Nick Reynolds formed the original Trio.
Along with all their traditional hit songs and fan favorites (everything from "Tom Dooley" to "MTA" to "Greenback Dollar" and "Where Have all the Flowers Gone?"), Josh, Mike and Tim have added fresh new stories and songs to The Kingston Trio repertoire.
