Mary Travers of Peter Paul & Mary Has Passed

Share Button

She was 72. The group was a tremendous influence on my music sensibilities, and I still adore and love the harmonies in their songs. My current band Acoustic Highway fits into the same mold as PP & M. We will probably perform “Puff The Magic Dragon” at Saturdays Patio Cafe gig in her honor. The group reunited several years ago to begin touring, and Travers performed with them until a few months ago, even when she needed assistance on stage. I would be so lucky to keep playing up to the end.

    So sad. I grew up with Puff. My mom used to sing it to me when I went to bed.
