Thread Name: Revisionist opinion on the Kingston Trio
Subject: RE: Revisionist opinion on the Kingston Trio
Here in Washington Dick Cerri was on the radio with Music Americana by 1962 (when I noticed)playing Leadbelly, Woody Guthrie, The Weavers, et al. We were fortunate here in DC. Then we were the Bluegrass capital with radio, local TV and The Shamrock in Georgetown with live Bluegrass. Don Reno and Red Smiley and Jimmie Dean were on Channel 5! Mississippi John Hurt was playing up town.

The Kingston Trio was no seminal influence here. Dave Guard's Scotch and Soda was memorable.
