Peter Yarrow w/ Special Guests Bethany & Rufus
Fifty years after the release of the first album by Peter, Paul
& Mary, the man who helped to reinforce folk music’s place in the
American consciousness has neither slowed his pace of activity, nor
surrendered one ounce of the activist’s passion that has kept his voice
loud and clear in the public forum of progressive causes.
In the wake of the 2009 passing of Mary Travers, Peter Yarrow has
continued to tour with Noel “Paul” Stookey — as well as in a solo
context, and as a member of a new and entirely different kind of trio.
Peter, Bethany and Rufus teams the veteran singer and songwriter with
his daughter, vocalist Bethany Yarrow, as well as with the spectacular
cellist Rufus Cappadocia — a project that evolved from a collaboration
on an album of children’s classics (including, of course, “Puff the
Magic Dragon”) to the acclaimed touring presentation The Spirit of
Peter Yarrow, whose activities in the 21st century include the founding
of the successful anti-bullying initiative known as Operation Respect,
remains both a friendly face and a driving force in modern folk music —
and the Pollak Theatre welcomes two generations of Yarrows for this
special concert event.
