The Folk Legacy Trio
presented by the Bartlesville Community Concert Association
Wednesday, October 6, 2021 at 7:30 p.m.
The Folk Legacy Trio sings the songs of the great Folk Era from the ‘50s through the mid-‘70s, including songs from The Weavers, The Kingston Trio, The Limeliters, Peter Paul & Mary, The New Christy Minstrels, The Brothers Four, The Chad Mitchell Trio, Tom Paxton, Judy Collins, Joan Baez, Gordon Lightfoot, Simon & Garfunkel, John Denver, and many others.
The Folk Legacy Trio are George Grove, formerly with the Kingston Trio for 41 years, Rick Dougherty, former member of the Limeliters and Kingston Trio for 25 years and Jerry Siggins, former lead singer of the legendary doo-wop group The Diamonds for 27 years.
Jerry sang with several bands before joining the legendary The Diamonds, the ground-breaking group that recorded Little Darlin' and American Bandstand favorite The Stroll. Rick 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. George went from being a background picker at The Grand Ole Opry almost directly into a forty-one year career as banjoist extraordinaire with The Kingston Trio.
Along the way, all three gentlemen shared stages with the best known names of the folk era: Peter Paul & Mary, Tom Paxton, Judy Collins, Barry MacGuire, The New Christy Minstrels, The Brothers Four, The Chad Mitchell Trio, The Mamas & The Papas, The Association, John Sebastian, The Limeliters, Glenn Yarbrough, The Kingston Trio, Pete Seeger…a list of musical icons, but also a list of people with whom they’ve performed, traveled, written songs and shared meals. These are the friends and memories The Folk Legacy Trio bring to life with the memorable music of the Great American Folksong Book™.
