Tom Dooley - Revisited

11/24/12 8:00PM By Joel Najman

The recording of Tom Dooley by the Kingston Trio was one of the biggest selling hit singles of 1958 and one that sparked a popular folk music revival which continues to this day. This week Joel Najman's My Place program traces the history of the real-life individual who is the subject of the song, and presents a series of recordings of songs that are predecessors of the Tom Dooley song, one dating back to 1929.
