It is a journey through American Musical History with their signature dynamic harmonies enriching some of the most beloved songs ever written.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
The Folk Legacy Trio are George Grove and Rick Dougherty formerly with the Kingston Trio and Jerry Siggins, former lead singer of The Diamonds’. The Folk Legacy Trio sing the Great American Folksong Book featuring some of the most wonderful and beloved songs ever written.

Folk Legacy Trio brings together the talents of George Grove, Rick Dougherty and Jerry Siggins to sing the great songs of the folk era. These three men have been involved with the music of the great Folk Era since it’s very beginning.

What have you been doing since 1971? Hemming your bell bottoms? Rebuilding your Volkswagen bus? George, Rick and Jerry have been performing the music they love at the highest levels of national and international stages.

Jerry sang with the famous Dapper Dans barbershop quartet at Disneyland parks in California, Florida and Japan. He sang with a Celtic band for a decade before joining the legendary doo-wop group 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, Josh White Jr, The Limeliters, Glenn Yarbrough, The Kingston Trio, Pete Seeger… Yes, this is a list of musical icons, but it is 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 and exciting music of the Great American Folksong Book™.
