An Evening with Peter Yarrow (of Peter, Paul & Mary)
Peter Yarrow (born May 31, 1938) is an American singer and songwriter who found fame with the 1960s folk music trio Peter, Paul and Mary. Yarrow co-wrote (with Leonard Lipton) one of the group's greatest hits, "Puff, the Magic Dragon" -- and he is coming to Ironwood! Peter will be joined on the Ironwood stage by Mustard's Retreat.
“We’re part of a long train ride,” is the way Peter Yarrow visualizes the many events that have highlighted a career spanning more than four decades. With characteristic care, Yarrow places the success he’s had within a greater context, seeing his accomplishments as part of a tradition, to be credited and carried on. “When I was in high school,” he recalls, “I heard The Weavers’ concert at Carnegie Hall where they sang songs such as ‘If I Had a Hammer,’ and ‘Wasn’t That a Time.’ It was inspiring, and it showed me the extraordinary effect that music of conscience can have.” That lesson launched Peter on a lifelong path that is now, perhaps, in its most vital phase.
Over the years, many issues have moved Peter to commit his time and talent: equal rights, peace, the environment, gender equality, homelessness, hospice care, and education. All have utilized his skills as both a performer and an organizer. Peter Yarrow’s life and work -- culminating in the founding and leadership of Operation Respect with its “Don’t Laugh At Me” initiative -- is based on his passionate belief that music, with its power to build community and catalyze change, can be a particularly powerful organizing tool.
From a recent review of a Peter Yarrow show: "Peter Yarrow -- simply legendary. Articulate, insightful, funny, uplifting….nostalgic and rivetingly contemporary."
And another: "An Evening of Conversation and Song...this IS a show for our times…especially now."
So join us at the Historic Ironwood Theatre to hear Peter's message of hope, resiliency and community.
And here is a special opportunity not to be missed -- for JUST $50 (which includes a reserved seat for the show), you can participate in a pre-show Meet and Greet. How often do you get the chance to hang out with one of the true legends of American folk music? There are a limited number of Meet and Greet tickets so book now!
