Subject: RE: Kingston trio--a place in history
I heard a bit of them 'back then', but I was up to my neck in a group that was doing some pretty traditional stuff, and KT and such just didn't interest me much. Sure, they were influential for awhile, and no doubt got some people playing, but THEY knew they weren't 'folk'..

No law against liking who & what you like...I just hope you will be careful what you call it, and realize that the most famous and well-paid groups were not necessarily the best, the most 'trad', or the most authentic. Even an old curmudgeon like me can enjoy a bit of that stuff occasionally, but I am aware of it's place and relevance,
