I'm still holding out hope that GBR will re group and do some touring.
: So since most people who frequent this board
: have stated no interest in going to see the
: group some currently call the Kingston Trio
: play live, who will you be spending your
: folk music concert money on?
: Just wondering.
: I'll be catching the Punch Brothers as well
: as Peter Yarrow & Paul Stookey in the
: next few months.
: Also bluegrass mandolin player Sierra Hull
: (if I can swing a trip to the thousand
: Islands the closest she'll be to me this
: Also hoping Makem & Spain (Tommy
: Makem's son Rory along with Mickey and Liam
: Spain) make it back to this area soon. To
: me they are the closest thing to the
: original KT out there right now, plus of
: course the lineage of Tommy Makem in there
: too. Last summer when I saw them at a
: festival I was talking to Mickey Spain about
: what was happening then with the Trio (he
: hadn't heard yet) and I joked with him that
: Shane should have just sold the name to
: them if he wanted a change. Mickey laughed
: but he, Liam, and Rory are all big Trio
: fans. I got to sing Tijuana Jail with them
: at a late night session a few years ago.
: BTW speaking of Tommy Makem's son Rory, he
: and Liam Clancy's son Donal Clancy have
: been doing shows together. Makem and
: Clancy all over again. Hope to get a chance
: to catch them together live sometime soon
: What about you all, who are you looking
: forward to seeing?
