Helping Pave Folk Music's Way

On Wednesday, The Kingston Trio will perform at the Jim & Joyce Faulkner Performing Arts Center.

The Kingston Trio is a staple of folk music, and it will be returning to Fayetteville this week. The group's founding members retired in the mid-1960s, and its current lineup have connections to the original artists.

Timothy is a life-long Arkansan; he grew up in the hills outside of Winslow and has lived throughout northwest and western Arkansas. As a budding musician in his formative years, he became enthralled with recording technology, which carried over into his collegiate studies of print and multimedia journalism at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. Upon receiving his degree in journalism in 2011, Timothy immediately began working as a freelance reporter and photographer for the Washington County Observer in West Fork, Winslow and Greenland. It wasn't long before he left the newspaper business for radio and began working full-time as an announcer and news programmer for KURM AM/FM in Rogers.
