Hold your head high, folk fans: The Kingston Trio is teaming up with the Lovin’ Spoonful’s John Sebastian for a concert that’s being dubbed “The Folk Reunion.”
The show will take place at 2 p.m. Sun., Nov. 12 in the Kavli Theatre at Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza, 2100 E. T.O. Blvd.
In 1957, the Kingston Trio’s original lineup—Dave Guard, Bob Shane and Nick Reynolds— injected the stagnant folk music scene with new life and became part of the “folk revival.” Their use of acoustic guitars, banjos and three-part harmony can be heard in such iconic songs as “Where Have All the Flowers Gone,” “Scotch and Soda,” “M.T.A.” and the Grammy-winning hit “Tom Dooley.”
Today, the Kingston Trio features Josh Reynolds, the son of co-founder Nick Reynolds; Mike Marvin, Josh’s cousin and the “adopted” son of Nick; and Tim Gorelangton, Josh and Mike’s lifelong friend and one of the only people outside the Kingston Trio who Nick recorded with.
Sebastian’s group, The Lovin’ Spoonful, played a major role in the mid-1960s rock revolution. The group’s rootsy songs include “Do You Believe in Magic,” “Daydream,” “Younger Girl,” “Rain on the Roof” and “Summer in the City.”
