Kingston Trio's John Stewart R.I.P.

Share Button

John Stewart is most famous, not for being in KT, but for writing the Monkey’s hit “Daydream Believer”. The Kingston Trio was one of the groups that heavily influenced my musical sensibilities; they were one of the handful of groups that I credit with teaching me how to harmonize. My family used to sit around the table and sing along to their records. The love of their music is one of the reasons why I enjoy being in Acoustic Highway so much. I didn’t know the members by name (I was very young at the time), but sometimes they are such an influence, that they feel like family. Goodbye my friend.
