The Halifax Three (folk)

The Halifax Three (or The Halifax III), originally The Colonials, was a folk music band in Canada in the 1960s. The band performed in Toronto and Montreal before becoming part of the New York folk scene and recording an album.  Denny Doherty, Pat LaCroix and Richard Byrne formed The Colonials in 1960 in Halifax NS where they hosted a CBC TV program. After performing in Toronto and Montreal, the band changed its name to The Halifax Three in 1963, and, with the addition of Toronto born Zal Yanovsky, toured with The Journeymen and played Carnegie Hall in New York City.  The band broke up in 1965.
