$49, $39, $29
The Kingston Trio rose to become the undisputed kings of an acoustic musical genre that exploded in the 1950’s and 60’s. For over 60 years, the group has performed their timeless classics including “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?” and “Tom Dooley.” The Kingston Trio received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Grammys in 2011.
The Brothers Four were pioneers in the folk revival. Their all-acoustic performances consist of guitars, banjo, mandolin, upright bass, and of course, the trademark rich blend of their four voices. Musical million-sellers for The Brothers Four include “Greenfields,” “Try to Remember,” “Across the Wide Missouri,” and “The Green Leaves of Summer.”
For 60+ years the Limeliters have entertained standing-room-only crowds with their incredible musical talent and zany sense of humor. They first made their mark in folk clubs and on college campuses in the early 60’s. Hits include “There’s a Meetin’ Here Tonight,” “City of New Orleans,” “A Dollar Down,” and “Lonesome Traveler.”
