SCF Foundation to Present Kingston Trio

(Bradenton, Fla., Jan. 19, 2017) — State College of Florida Foundation brings the Kingston Trio to Bradenton at 2 p.m. Jan. 29 as part of its Sundays at Neel series. The concert series will be held at State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota’s Neel Performing Arts Center, 5840 26th St. W. throughout the Spring. General admission is $35. Sundays at Neel is a series of fundraising concerts that benefit State College of Florida Foundation scholarships.

The acoustic music group has become a hot ticket once again as acoustic music and storytelling regains its popularity. Bob Shane, Nick Reynolds and Dave Guard formed the original Kingston Trio in 1957, while the three were attending college in the San Francisco area. Their music featured acoustic guitars and banjos, and simple yet memorable melodies.

The Kingston Trio today consists of George Grove, Bill Zorn and Rick Dougherty. The group’s trademark three-part harmony and clean, crisp sound keeps them touring 30 weeks out of the year.
