THE FOLK REUNION
7:30 p.m., Reynolds Performance Hall, UCA, Conway. $30-$32.

Nostalgia knows no bounds. The folk celebrated in this reunion itself emerged from a revival that started more than 50 years ago in what was, itself, only the latest exploration of music that has roots that reach back thousands of years. Better believe in the enduring power of song because, as is often the case in these nostalgia tours, few of the original members in the trio of folk-revival acts performing remain. The Kingston Trio, the astoundingly popular folk-pop group perhaps most responsible for ushering in the folk revival in the late '50s, features two members who joined the band in the '70s and one who's only been around for the last four years. Bet they still know how to play “Tom Dooley,” though. The Limeliters, formed in part by an arranger for the Kingston Trio, might be the most likely folk revival act to show up on “Mad Men.” One of their most enduring songs is “Things Go Better with Coke,” a jingle for the soda company. Alas, the current line-up of the band is barely gray. Only the Brothers Four, famous for songs like “Greenfields,” includes an original member.
