Martin, that is just flat wrong. Within the folk revival, the Weavers were hugely influential. They laid the foundation for almost everything that followed them,including the singer-songwriters, the folk groups and even the urban singers who learned their traditional repertiore at the foot of their parent's record players.

In terms of the long-term folk revival, the Kingston Trio and all those other groups wearing matching shirts that followed them were a temporary diversion rather than a long-term influence.
