The Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts will host a tribute concert honoring The Kingston Trio, one of America’s most popular folk groups for more than 40 years, on Saturday, Aug. 20, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for “A Tribute to the Trio” start at $10.
The Kingston Trio is best known for such hits as “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?” and “Tom Dooley.” Collectively, The Kingston Trio released 19 albums that made Billboard’s Top 100, 14 of which were in the top ten, and five of which hit the number one spot.
The opening act for this tribute concert will be The Sock Hops, a premiere oldies group from Marietta, Ga. Specializing in four-part harmonies of musical favorites of the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s, The Sock Hops have had the privilege of opening for such acts as The Temptations, The Drifters, and Frankie Avalon.
