Dave Guard was an important figure in the late ’50s and early ’60s folk boom, principally as a member of the Kingston Trio, and for a brief time as the central attraction in Dave Guard’s Whiskeyhill Singers.
Guard, with Nick Reynolds and Bob Shane, was an original member of the Kingston Trio and did his share of songwriting in that group, co-writing their 1959 hit “A Worried Man.” In 1961, however, Guard left the still-thriving act (to be replaced by John Stewart), upset about some problems with the handling of their finances and wanting to pursue different musical directions.
