Another Flower Gone: Good-bye to Mary Travers

A daughter of union organizers, Mary grew up in Greenwich Village and while only a teenager sang backup for the legendary Pete Seeger. Today, her clear, warm vocals on songs written by Seeger and Bob Dylan remind us of the softer aspects of 1960s social struggle. "If I Had a Hammer," "Where Have All the Flowers Gone" and "Blowin' in the Wind" are still favorites for youth groups.

Check out the trio's timeless music from the library. The Very Best of Peter, Paul & Mary is available on compact disc, as are their collections for children: Peter, Paul & Mommy and Peter, Paul & Mommy, Too.
