Peter, Paul and Mary 25th Anniversary Concert

Thu, 03/08/2012 - 8:00pm

Sing along with the legendary trio as they perform timeless classics.

In 1986, the legendary trio Peter, Paul and Mary marked their 25th anniversary with the taping of their very first PBS special. Now, two and a half decades later, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the formation of the group in Greenwich Village, this joyous yet deeply moving live concert is being re-broadcast. PETER, PAUL & MARY 25th ANNIVERSARY CONCERT, airing Thursday, March 8 at 8 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD (DT21.1./cable 1011 and 11), features songs that became, for many, the soundtrack of their generation. In an era in which folk music became America’s messenger of hope, Peter, Paul & Mary sounded a call to conscience that, to this day, remains an enduring part of our national quest for equity and justice. Songs include such timeless classics as “Puff, the Magic Dragon,” “If I Had a Hammer,” “Blowin’ in the Wind,” “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?” and “Leaving on a Jet Plane.”
