Printed photograph signed in ink: "Peter Yarrow" in blue ink, "Mary Travers" in blue felt, and "Paul Stookey" in green felt. 10x8. PETER YARROW (b. 1938) was a member of the folk trio Peter, Paul and Mary, whose Grammy-winning debut album in 1962 has sold over 2 million copies. Peter, Paul and Mary were among the most popular of the folk artists who helped shape the cultural values of the 1960s. Yarrow wrote or co-wrote many of the trio's biggest hits, including Puff, the Magic Dragon (1963), which Yarrow always insists was intended as a children's song, not a drug song. A social activist, Yarrow was in the forefront of opposition to the Vietnam War, nuclear power, and persecution of Soviet Jewry. In 2000, he founded Operation Respect, dedicated to preventing school violence and bullying. He often performs with his daughter, Bethany Yarrow. MARY TRAVERS (1937-2009) is a founding member of legendary folk group Peter, Paul and Mary. Travers grew up in New York City's Greenwich Village and with the folk songs of the Weavers, Leadbelly and Woody Guthrie. She'd already performed at Carnegie Hall and recorded with Pete Seeger with a group called the Songswappers before forming Peter, Paul and Mary in 1961 with Peter Yarrow and Noel Paul Stookey. Peter, Paul and Mary put 11 songs on the Billboard Pop Singles and Adult Contemporary charts, including the civil rights anthem If I Had a Hammer (1962) and the chart toppers Blowin' in the Wind (1963), Puff (The Magic Dragon) (1963) and a cover of John Denver's Leaving on a Jet Plane (1969), with lead vocals by Travers, and won three Grammies for If I Had a Hammer, Blowin' in the Wind and the 1969 album Peter, Paul and Mommy. The band broke up in 1970, and Travers continued to perform and record as a soloist, releasing the Adult Contemporary Top 10 song Follow Me (1971), before reuniting with Stookey and Yarrow in 1978. PAUL STOOKEY (b. 1937) is an American musician. He's probably best known as Paul from the folk group Peter, Paul and Mary. His best known song is probably The Wedding Song (There is Love), performed at the wedding of band mate Peter Yarrow and released on Stookey's first solo album, Paul and..., in 1971. A frequently covered song in the 1970s, Stookey assigned the copyright to The Public Domain Foundation, which distributes the royalties from The Wedding Song to charities. His music after Peter, Paul and Mary was strongly Christian, and he was important in the "Jesus music" genre of the 1960s and 1970s, which has since become the contemporary Christian music industry. Bowed. Small ink marks on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
