Re: Saturday 6/12/2021 at Noon ABM Kingston Trio HOF induction
Great post! What a superb historical repository for all fans of banjos and The Kingston Trio.
I also recall a GG, BZ, and BH KT concert where George and Bill played 5-strings and Bob Haworth played a 4-string on "A Worried Man." It was quite a large church venue in Holland, Michigan, where they performed twice; once in the afternoon and again that evening. I believe it was spring of 2004 or 2005. Two wonderful shows performed with different play lists for those of us who were fortunate to obtain tickets to both. Mighty grateful, Fellas! Thanks for a LIFETIME of the KT catalog.
Max, thanks for the post! Great to see the footage and all the banjo players! However, there was an error in the narrative, the statement that the Trio's playing 3 banjos simultaneously at the Induction was a first-of-a-kind event. In 2005, I saw the Trio in Troy NY (George Grove, Bill Zorn, and Bob Haworth at that time) open their set with all three playing banjo on "Comin' from the Mountains," which was quite a treat.
