"Charlie on the M.T.A."

Kingston Trio founding member Nick Reynolds, passed away Wednesday at the age of 75. What I know of the Kingston Trio is what I've heard my dad play over the years. Whether on family road trips as he'd kick back in the back of the station wagon playing his guitar or on stage with the Nashville Folk Project at Mulligan's on 2nd Avenue, he'd always entertain and educate us kids on the music of his youth. I think it was old Kingston Trio records that got him interested in learning how to play guitar in the first place.

Here's my favorite Kingston Trio song, "Charlie on the M.T.A. " I hope I never meet the same fate as poor Charlie.
