Peter Yarrow & Noel Paul Stookey of Peter, Paul and Mary

  • Troy Savings Bank Music Hall 30 2nd Street Troy, NY, 12180 United States (map)

Celebrate 50 years with Peter and Paul as they reminisce on their time as part of America's favorite folk group!

No American folk group lasted longer or amassed a more loyal following than Peter, Paul and Mary; indeed, few groups of any genre logged more years or miles in direct, yearly touring; spreading the message and engaging the next generations. During its legendary career, the trio won five Grammy’s, produced 13 Top 40 hits, of which 6 ascended into the Top 10 – as well as eight gold and five platinum albums. That PP&M achieved such a rarefied level of commercial success without compromise, while continuing a centuries-old tradition of people raising their voices in song for the sake of freedom, is simply further evidence of their extraordinarily successful career—as much a mission accomplished as a musical career. 

Mary Travers passed away in September 2009 and it was a loss to her family, friends and the nation.  Mary was a passionate singer of songs, songs that have enlightened us and moved us to action as citizens of America and the world.  Her life and legacy remain a great American treasure.
