Peter, Paul & Mary star to perform Dec. 8

gl-Yarrow-concert-12-5

Legendary musician Peter Yarrow will perform at Greenwich Library this weekend.

Do you love music by Peter, Paul & Mary? If so, you won’t want to miss a 90-minute concert by Peter Yarrow, a member of the group, on Dec. 8 at 3:30 p.m. at Greenwich Library.

As a member of the renowned musical trio, Mr. Yarrow has earned many gold and platinum album awards and has been nominated for, and awarded, numerous Grammys. His talent as a creative artist — both in a group and as a solo performer – is in using music to convey a message of humanity and caring.

His gift for songwriting has produced some of the most moving songs Peter, Paul & Mary have recorded, including Puff, the Magic Dragon, Day is Done, and Light the Candle.

In 1999, Mr. Yarrow’s philosophy, talents and connections culminated in the founding of Operation Respect, an anti-violence and anti-bullying organization that promotes the infusion of character, and social and emotional learning principles into school curricula through transformational music. Toward this end, Operation Respect created the Don’t Laugh at Me Program. The centerpiece of the program is a song by the same name sung by Peter, Paul & Mary.

This event is part of the Peterson Concert Series. The series is open to all at no charge through the support of the Peterson Foundation. Doors open at 3 p.m.; seating is limited and available on a first come, first served basis. For more information, email Music Services Librarian David Waring at [email protected] or call 203-622-7917.
