Folk Legends to Perform

“I am thrilled to announce that George Grove and I have teamed up with Jerry Siggins, a fabulous lead baritone, to form a new trio, the Folk Legacy Trio (briefly called, The Folk Legends)” says Rick Dougherty.

“George and I were most recently members of the Kingston Trio; George was with them for a few weeks short of 41 years, and I for 12. Jerry was a member of the Dapper Dans, the famous barbershop quartet that performed at Disneyland for 15 years in California, Florida and Tokyo. He then sang for five years with an Irish band, and for the past 27 years he has been singing lead with the famous 50s group, The Diamonds. Jerry brings all that experience and his wonderful voice to the new trio and we can't wait for you to hear how those harmonies ring out,” says Dougherty.
