This rare 1982 performance, originally broadcast nationally on PBS, brought together for the first time since 1961 the original members of the Kingston Trio performing some of their most influential songs.

Together on stage for the first time in 21 years, the original members of the Kingston Trio (Nick Reynolds, Bob Shane and Dave Guard) performed a thrilling concert of their greatest hits. Joining the renowned folk group were Tommy Smothers, Mary Travers (of Peter, Paul and Mary), Lindsay Buckingham (of Fleetwood Mac) and new Trio members George Grove and Roger Gambill.

Since their debut in 1958 with the gold record song Tom Dooley, the Kingston Trio had a powerful influence on such artists as Joan Baez, Bob Dylan and dozens of folk groups of the late 1950s and 1960s.

This historic reunion concert, filled with the unique and vibrant sound that millions of Kingston Trio fans loved for over a generation, preserves the tremendous legacy of this group that became an American musical legend.
