    My father loved the Kingston Trio.

    RIP to both of them.

    My dad had their albums and I bought several CD’s a few years ago. They were extremely talented, a cut above many of their peers.

    My parents used to play Kingston Trio records for me at bedtime each night.

    Rest in peace.

    Folk music was what originally drew me to the guitar....around '60-'61. I might still be playing Tom Dooley and 500 Miles if the British Invasion hadn't landed.

    Very sad to hear. Been one of my favorites since the late 50's. Have always played a bunch of their songs, also the main reasons I have an acoustic tenor guitar. So many good songs by very talented guys. Got all their albums as they were released, first on vinyl then on CD. Scotch & Soda has always been one of my favorites to play and sing. Played in a folk group in college in the mid 60's.

    So did my best friend's Dad which is where I heard them first. We might not be here today talking about the music we love without the Kingston trio. I remember them being sort of the ambassadors of the folk scene to the general/TV viewing public. RIP.

    One of my favorite SONGS, written by Hoyt Axton.....performed by the Kingston Trio. I still pull this one out of the bag when in a solo situation.

    Little did I know at age eleven or so, how prophetic the line "......a bottle of brandy and a song....the only ones that ever care....."

    The Kingston Trio, man their songs used to fill the airwaves back in the day of AM radio. You would hear them coming over the air at lots of different places. If only they could have learned to cuss and spit, they could have transitioned right into the new wave of the music world.

    They were probably my first inspiration to be an entertainer. I remember me and my best friend running around in the house playing their music. Had an old non usable guitar we were plucking away at....

    I love the Kingston Trio. RIP
    My older brother had their albums in the early '60s. They were some of my first exposure to music.
    Their music has aged very, very well and sounds as good today as it did sixty years ago.
