In 1962, three students at the University of Tennessee formed a folk group, calling themselves the Cumberland Trio. In 1963 they won the Annual Intercollegiate Folk competition in Jacksonville, FL, earning them a spot on ABC-TV's "Hootenanny" show and a recording contract. But success eluded them. Two of their early recording sessions-- a studio effort with Chet Atkins and a live concert recording-- would not be released for 40 years, and only recently was a third set of tracks, recorded in New York City in 1963-64 rediscovered and restored. But the intrepid trio-- Jerre Haskew, Andy Garverick, and Tom Kilpatrick-- often accompanied by bassist Jim Shuptrine-- would rise again. In 2001 they reunited, releasing a live concert album, as well as a CD featuring their first two recording efforts. Another live CD followed in 2004. With the reappearance of their long lost New York recordings (to be released this fall on CD), they celebrate 50 years of folk music tradition. For four hours on THE FOLK REVIVAL we will listen to a variety of tracks from this terrific group, interspersed with live interviews with members of the Cumberland Trio. Tune in and enjoy!
