One of the most prominent groups of the pop-folk boom of the late 1950's to late 60s, is playing some of their best-known songs in Santa Barbara on Friday.

The Kingston Trio have sold millions of records over 65 years in the music business, including Tom Dooley - which reached number 1 in the Billboard Hot 100 in 1958.

All three current members, Mike Marvin, Tim Gorelangton and Don Marovich, have intrinsic links to and experience with the original group: Mike is the adopted son of founding member Nick Reynolds, who was also his musical mentor.

"It's not going to be one of those concerts where you go and you hear one song that's familiar or one hit song and then there's 20 minutes of jamming," Marvin told KCLU.

"All the songs are quality songs and they tend to resonate with a broad audience," he said.

The Kingston Trio are playing at the Lobero Theater on Friday evening.

Caroline joined KCLU in October 2020. She won LA Press Club's Audio Journalist of the Year Award in 2022.

She started her broadcasting career in the UK, in both radio and television for BBC News, 95.8 Capital FM and Sky News and was awarded the Prince Philip Medal for her services to radio and journalism in 2007.

She has lived in California for ten years and is both an American and British citizen - and a very proud mom to her daughter, Elsie.
