The Cumberland Trio, a folk group that originated in the '60s Folk Era, reunited on November 9, 2001 at the historic Bijou Theatre in Knoxville, TN, for an official Reunion Concert, which was captured in digital stereo, and features a Double CD, 28 song, 2 1/2 hour rousing concert happening, featuring a raucous and appreciative sold out audience!! It has been praised by such Folk Icons as Mike Kirkland of The Brothers Four and Roger McGuinn of The Byrds as a Landmark Folk Recording that should be in all 'folkies'' collections. The Trio appeared on three episodes of ABC-TV's prime Saturday night music show, 'Hootenanny,' in the mid-'60s and broke up in 1965 after the British Invasion. The ORIGINAL Trio, Andy Garverick, Jerre Haskew & Tom Kilpatrick, reunited in 2001 for this special concert and continue to perform today to sold out audiences at intimate venues across the USA, as well as at large, multi-genre music festivals. The Reunion Concert features a wide variety of songs, spanning the generations from the Folk Boom of the '60s to the present. To categorize this band's music genre is almost impossible, as it's music consists of hard-driving folk/bluegrass, blues, pop, classical and traditional gospel. Instrumentally, this landmark CD features the great innovative driving and soft banjo styles of Andy Garverick, the incredible unique rhythm guitar and autoharp of Tom Kilpatrick, the high end guitar and banjo rhythm of Jerre Haskew, the solid bottom of Bob Wilkerson on electric bass- and most importantly, the almost unbelievable dobro of Lou Wamp, nicknamed the 'Wizard of String' by his peers, who is recognized as one of the top 3 dobro players in the world. Lou also plays in his multi-talented unique style on violin/fiddle, cello and mandolin in this incredibly varied musical experience. Lastly this concert is incredibly entertaining, featuring funny songs and patter, as well as 'Sam' the Lion in costume in lively and fun interaction with the Trio/Band and the audience. In short, it's a really good time created by a great group of singers and musicians fueled by an enthusuastic audience that loved them back! The group reunited in 2000 with the release of it's signature 1964 RCA LP produced by the legendary Chet Atkins with incredible remastering to CD by Steve Wallace of CWSMultiMedia.com. The Trio and band have recorded two live reunion concerts (2001 on this 2 Disc CD & 2004 on both DVD and CD-also available right here on CDBaby) and is performing concerts at music halls & major multi- genre music festivals across the USA. Their music is being played on major NPR/Americana/Bluegrass/Folk music radio stations across the USA and in Europe. PBS broadcasted the Trio's 2004 reunion concert DVD within Tennessee in December of 2005, with plans to syndicate it to all other PBS affiliate stations throughout the USA in 2006-2007.
