For now, I believe that the most accurate thing that can be said about the Shanes is that they have retired from the Kingston Trio business.
If not, since Josh now controls the web site, I don't know how we might learn other wise.
"Mum" seems to be the word at camp.
Everyone seems to be having too much fun to be greatly concerned.
My guess is that we'll know nothing until after October 1, if then.
I am further guessing that after the initial shock of it all, in the long run, Josh may have done George, Bill & Rick a favor.
Better now, than later, when they are older, that they begin new phases of their lives.
I know that we all wish them well, but....we're sure gonna miss them.
I never got to see them do a complete show.
They have only been to KY twice.
The first time was for a Christmas show ... Jackee said it was the best Trio show she'd seen in a long time.
The second time was with the Louisville Orchestra.
I think that was about 8 years ago....time flies.
