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 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 Woodstock. Peter Yarrow, whose activities in the 21 st 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.
