Nice to see your post here Ken Brock.

Annony Mouse is right. The KT don't get a lot of the credit they deserve here from the purists who want their folkies to bray, have beards or no teeth to be authentic.

I'd much rather have tight harmonies, fine musicianship, and a feel good entertaining attitude.

Bob Shane was the glue that held a once great group together. The only problem I have is that today's group, of which Shane holds the rights to the name and are good musicians notwithstanding, are an authorized tribute band taking bows for the accomplishments (repertoire & arrangements, the "act") of others.
