Peter Yarrow Singer and songwriter, Peter Paul & Mary

Peter Yarrow of the iconic trio Peter Paul & Mary reflects, “We’re part of a long train ride that carries an inspiring legacy which we have had the privilege of carrying forward.” “When I was in high school,” he recalls, “I heard The Weavers sing songs at Carnegie Hall like ‘If I Had a Hammer’ ‘Follow The Drinking Gourd’ and ‘Wasn’t That a Time.’ I was stunned by the effect of their music, particularly when they sang songs advocating social justice, freedom and peace.” That moving experience launched Peter on a lifelong journey that continues with great energy and an unceasing commitment to efforts that harness his music to create a better world.
