The Kindred Spirit was a folk trio featuring Phil Rolleston, Thom Tollerson and Deborah McColl. In 1968, a recording was made of one of their live concert, using one microphone. In 2008, the tape of that recording was resurrected and the audio cleaned up. It was that recording that provided the inspiration for the band to have a reunion 40 years later. The three members of the trio were interviewed the night before their reunion concert. Phil Rolleston was the first to be interviewed.
