  • Singer, songwriter and guitarist Bob Haworth will present a mix of his original music along with many of the hit folksongs he performed while working with The Brothers Four and The Kingston Trio from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, March 21, at South Stage Cellars, 125 S. Third St., Jacksonville. Admission is free.
    Haworth was born in Spokane, Wash., and moved to Medford with his family in 1959. He graduated from Medford High School in 1965, then attended the University of Oregon in Eugene — putting himself through college with money made from weekend performances in local venues.
    In 1970, he replaced Mike Kirkland in the hit Seattle-based folk group The Brothers Four, and toured the world and recorded more than a dozen albums with the group until 1985.
    A call from his good friend Bob Shane of The Kingston Trio stole Haworth from The Brothers Four to sing with The Kingston Trio for the next 20 years. Standing in for original member, Nick Reynolds, Bob recorded and toured with The Trio through the summer of 2005.
    Haworth plays six- and 12-string guitars, banjo, ukulele and harmonica.
    Now retired and living in Colorado, Haworth and his wife, Meri, return to Oregon twice a year to visit family.
