November 9, 1936 – September 16, 2009

Mary_TraversMary Travers is best remembered as one-third of the iconic folk trio, Peter, Paul and Mary.  Formed in 1961, the trio gained world-wide acclaim during the ’60s folk revival with such hits as “If I Had A Hammer,” “Puff The Magic Dragon,” and their cover of Bob Dylan’s “Blowin’ In The Wind.”  They were one of the premier folk groups for many years to come.  The trio disbanded in 1970 after which Travers recorded five solo albums throughout the ’70s.  Peter, Paul and Mary regrouped in 1978 and stayed active, both touring and recording, until recent years.  Mary Travers died of leukemia at the age of 72.
