In July 2018 I had the opportunity to interview the Kingston Trio. Growing up in the 50s, 60s and being a young adult in the 70s their music genre was one I appreciated and the songs they wrote and performed were songs by many of us sang at school, summer camp, and around the bond fires when someone took out their guitar and led us through them. As a younger person, I never thought I would ever have the ability to meet them, let alone talk to them about their music, but now I will for the second time. https://www.spreaker.com/user/10697139/the-kingston-trio-live-7-12-18
For me, success is not counted in money – but the opportunities that I have to connect with special people. https://www.kingstontrio.com/
The original Trio consisted of Dave Guard, Bob Shane, and Nick Reynolds.
Mike Marvin – Taken in as part of the Nick Reynolds family as a teenager, Mike learned his music ropes at the foot of Nick Reynolds, his late “adopted father.”
Tim Gorelangton – was born in Hawaii, just like Bob Shane and Dave Guard. His father was an Air Force pilot and the family lived all over the United States. “Tim’s main goal is to ensure that the group’s music remains true to its original intentions. He’s the Trio’s Chief Musical Director, arranger, and cat wrangler.”
Don Marovich is from Gary, Indiana has had a very successful career in music and notes he was discovered by The Limeliters and was hired to be their tenor, and now is the tenor in the TRIO that makes me smile as the good old days are still here when they perform!
