WHERE HAVE ALL THE FLOWERS GONE * THE MTA * THEY CALL THE WIND MARIA * TOM DOOLEY * MANY MANY MORE... THE KINGSTON TRIO founded what turned out to be the most influential music band to emerge from the 1950's, only to be outdone by THE BEATLES. Fans of legendary folk icons The Kingston Trio will re-discover their timeless music in a national tour to mark the group's 60th anniversary. All three current members, Mike Marvin, Tim Gorelangton and Bob Haworth have intrinsic links to and experience with the original group: Mike is the adopted son of founding member Nick Reynolds, who was also his musical mentor; Tim, a close friend since boyhood, is one of the few musicians outside the Trio who has recorded with Nick Reynolds; and Bob Haworth, who has performed with the original Trio for periods between 1985-1999 when Nick Reynolds was unable to tour.

March 23, 2019 - New York

Harlem Stage and the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI) present a two part series of music and conversation celebrating the courageous and resilient Caribbean immigrants who traveled across land and sea and arrived in El Barrio, aka Spanish Harlem, seeking a bright future. What did they bring with them? What was left behind? What was reinvented? Spoken word, hip-hop, DJ and Afro-Latin jazz will be the vehicles that transport us to sunny beaches, sofrito, five floor walk-ups and sun kissed dreams of belonging. Puerto Rican and Dominican by way of the Bronx and Washington Heights—Circa '95, Patty Dukes and Reph, who rhyme seamlessly through English and Spanish, will showcase music and stories inspired by their families' migration to New York City during the golden era of hip-hop. The Curtis Brothers, African American and Puerto Rican, will explore West Africa's influence on American music from Latin America by mapping rhythms that evolved from the African slave trade: from samba, hip-hop, R&B, gospel, to blues, jazz and rock music.
