Peter, Paul And Mary

Formed in the early '60s in the midst of the thriving Greenwich Village folk scene, Peter, Paul & Mary have continued to warm the hearts and provoke the thoughts of audiences for decades. Peter Yarrow, Noel Paul Stookey, and Mary Travers joined forces at the suggestion of Yarrow's friend Albert Grossman (who was to go on to manage Bob Dylan and The Band), the idea being to combine the best features of past and current groups (from The Weavers to the Kingston Trio and New Christy Minstrels) into a musically engaging, politically conscious, and often humorous folk-music act. Their self-titled first album, released in 1962, took off on the strength of its second single, "If I Had a Hammer," which captured the spirit of the civil rights movement, then coming into prominence. They continued to have hit after hit, often with songs by such emerging songwriters as Dylan (their recording of "Blowing in the Wind" was a huge hit and helped propel Dylan into the mainstream), Gordon Lightfoot and John Denver. In the late '60s, having survived the British Invasion, they moved somewhat afield of folk music with Album and Album 1700 -- with Denver's "Leaving on a Jet Plane," one of the tracks from the latter, belatedly becoming a hit single two years after the album's release.
