The Cumberland Trio is a musical group that originated at the University of Tennessee in 1962. Despite their name, the "trio" had four members: Andy Garverick, Jerre Askew, Tom Kilpatrick, and Jim Shuptrine.
The group formed during while the four were members of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity, combining their musical prowess and forming the Cumberland Trio in the fall of 1962. After having great success in on campus and in Knoxville, the group was signed to RIC records that filed for bankrupcy in 1963, bringing an end to the group's success.
The group reunited in the early 2000s, performing together again and rereleasing albums, but disbanded for good upon the death of founding member Andy Garverick.
This collection was donated to the Special Collections in 2014.
