Mary Travers-1936-2009

Mary Travers, One-third of the famed folksinging trio Peter, Paul and Mary..Passed away yesterday following complications from Chemotherapy..She was 72..

Peter, Paul and Mary's career, first from 1961-70, then from 1978-present, was extremely successful, as they were the leading folksinging group in the USA, with hit songs Including If I had a Hammer, Puff The Magic Dragon and Lemon Tree. The group made many appearances on American, British and Australian Television. Mary had a solo careeer from 1970-78, in which she produced 5 albums..

If I had a Hammer-From what looks to be a show like Hootennanny or Shindig though It doesnt say where the video is from

Puff The Magic Dragon-From Peter, Paul and Mary Live

You may not be a fan of Folk Music, but it's hard not to enjoy Peter, Paul and Mary's excellent blend of harmony-and Mary Travers was a great part of that..Prayers to her Family and to Peter Yarrow and Noel Paul Stookey..
