Kingston Trio Exhibit Opens at the Guthrie Center September 24 2015

A joint effort sponsored by the Woody Guthrie Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma brought together the Woody Guthrie Archive, the Grammy Museum, and the Kingston Trio Legacy Project to create “Hard Travelin’: Woody Guthrie, the Kingston Trio and the Folk Revival.” The 1500 square foot exhibit explores the roots of folk music and the state of folk music up to the 1950s when the Kingston Trio burst on the scene and became the stimulus for a revolution in folk music. Their legacy is explored in the impact folk music made on the nation as it went through the turbulent times of the 1960s.
