Kingston Trio Traveling Exhibition Kicks-off in Paris

Bob Dylan was asked about his early influences. He named three. Elvis, Buddy Holly, and the Kingston Trio. When the Bob Dylan Rock Explosion opened in Paris at the Musee de la Musique in March, the first gallery was a tribute to these early influences. Created for the Musee by the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, the Kingston Trio Legacy Project provided an exhibit and a video on the Trio and its influence on Dylan. Through artifacts and images, the visitors are meeting the Trio and understanding their impact. This spectacular exhibition highlights Dylan’s career, contemporaries, and music.
