Thread Name: The Kingston Trio is Releasing a NEW CD
Subject: RE: The Kingston Trio is Releasing a NEW CD
I played with these guys in Lake Charles a couple years back. They ARE KT, no matter what the personnel changes have been. The music and the show is absolute KT and 2 of them have been with them since way way back (25+) ... To think that the original lineup is the ONLY legit lineup is short sighted. Where do you draw the line? Big name bands have always replaced players as they leave.
Especially in this case; these guys have honored the KT tradition and participated in it for decades (banjo player is a short timer, 5 years or so). And they have carried the continuity of KT through all the years.
