In the 60s, they rose to fame as a trio known as Peter, Paul, and Mary. Their 50-year old career was marked with milestones of hit songs such as “Puff The Magic Dragon”, “If I Had A Hammer (The Hammer Song)”, “Lemon Tree”, “Blowin’ In The Wind”, “Leaving On a Jet Plane”, “Where Have All The Flowers Gone”, and so much more. Composed of Peter Yarrow, Paul Stookey and Mary Travers, ‘Peter, Paul, and Mary’ were classified as folk-pop artists who captured the spirit of an era that expressed an impassioned cry for freedom, individuality, peace, change, hope, humanity. Their career was at an upswing during the 60s decade, til they went their own separate ways in the 70s. From 1978 to 2009, they reunited and continued to do live shows; until Mary’s untimely death in 2009 from complications brought about by chemotherapy in her bout against leukemia. To date, the duo of Peter and Paul continue to carry and spread their music legacy by actively going on concert tours around the world.
