Folk Legacy Trio
FOLK LEGACY TRIO brings together the talents of George Grove, Rick Dougherty and Jerry Siggins to sing the all-time greatest hits of the folk era. These three men have been involved with the music of the great Folk Era since it's very beginning.
GEORGE GROVE went from being a background picker at The Grand Ole Opry directly into a forty-one year career as banjoist extraordinaire with The Kingston Trio.
RICK DOUGHERTY has written dozens of songs, arranged for vocal groups and even directed opera (only under duress, he says), and hit the international stages first as Glenn Yarbrough’s replacement in The Limeliters for fourteen years and later adding his ringing tenor voice to The Kingston Trio for twelve years.
JERRY SIGGINS sang with the famous Dapper Dans barbershop quartet at Disneyland parks in California, Florida and Japan. He sang with a Celtic band for a decade before joining the legendary doo-wop group The Diamonds, the ground-breaking group that recorded Little Darlin' and American Bandstand favorite The Stroll.
Along the way, George, Rick and Jerry have shared stages with the best known names of the folk era, including:
Peter, Paul & Mary
The New Christy Minstrels
The Brothers Four
The Chad Mitchell Trio
The Mamas & The Papas
Josh White Jr.
The Kingston Trio
Yes, this is a list of musical icons; but it is also a list of people with whom they’ve performed, traveled, written songs and shared meals. These are the friends and memories FOLK LEGACY TRIO brings to life in concert, with the memorable and exciting music of the Great American Folksong Book™.
