Kingston Trio Coming to El Campanil

Through changing times, the Kingston Trio has played on, remaining popular for a simple reason: great songs that sound as good today as the first time you heard them. And 52 years after “Tom Dooley” shot to the top of the charts, the Trio is still on the road 30 weeks a year, bringing back all the great memories and making new ones.

In March 2004, Bob Shane suffered a heart attack, which has prevented him from returning to the road fulltime. Enter Bill Zorn, fresh from leaving the Limeliters, to rejoin the Trio and step in for Bob. Then in August 2005, Bobby Haworth left the group once again, and Rick Dougherty, also of the Limeliters, took over the spot. The addition of Rick’s beautiful voice has made the current lineup the most vocally complete group since the original days.

The Kingston Trio today consists of Bill Zorn, George Grove and Rick Dougherty. They are continuing the Kingston Trio legacy with fantastic reviews, command performances and many standing ovations wherever they perform.

The show starts at 4 p.m. on Sunday January 9 in the El Campanil Theatre, 602 West Second Street in downtown Antioch. Tickets: Adults: $32, Seniors: $27, Youth: $15, Gold Circle (first three rows): $45. Phone: (925) 757-9500 or go online to
