Er wollte eine Folk-„Supergruppe“ schaffen,
indem er „eine große Blonde“ (Travers), “
einen komischen Kerl“ (Stookey)
und einen „gut aussehenden Kerl“ (Yarrow) zusammenbrachte.
Er startete die Gruppe 1961, indem er sie im ‚Bitter End‘ auftreten ließ.

The group was created and managed by Albert Grossman,
who sought to create a folk „supergroup“ by bringing
together „a tall blonde (Travers), a funny guy (Stookey),
and a good looking guy (Yarrow).“
He launched the group in 1961, booking them into the The Bitter End,
a coffee house and popular folk venue in New York City’s Greenwich Village.

and „Where Have All the Flowers Gone“.
The album was listed on the Billboard Magazine Top Ten
list for ten months and in the Top One Hundred for over three years.

By 1963, they had recorded three albums,
released „Puff the Magic Dragon“, which Yarrow
and fellow Cornell student Leonard Lipton had written in 1959,
and performed „If I Had a Hammer“ at the 1963 March on Washington,
best remembered for Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.’s
„I Have a Dream“ speech. Their biggest single hit was
the Bob Dylan song, „Blowin‘ in the Wind,“ an international #1
and the fastest selling single ever cut by Warner Brothers Records.
For many years after, the group was at the forefront of
the civil rights movement and other causes promoting social justice.
„Leaving On A Jet Plane,“ which in December 1969 became
their only #1 (as well as their final Top 40) hit, was written
by the then-unknown John Denver and first appeared on their Album 1700 in 1967.
„Day Is Done,“ a #21 hit in June 1969, was the last Hot 100 hit the trio recorded.

Die Gruppenmitglieder strebten dann Solokarrieren an,
aber keiner hatte auch nur annähernd den Erfolg,
den sie als Gruppe hatten. Allerdings wurde Stookeys “
The Wedding Song (There Is Love)“,
den er 1971 für Yarrows Trauung mit Marybeth McCarthy,
einer Nichte des Senators Eugene McCarthy, schrieb,
zu einem Standard-Song für Hochzeiten.
Seit 1978 ist das Trio in unregelmäßigen Abständen
gemeinsam aufgetreten und hat einige neue Alben herausgebracht.

 

1999 wurde die Gruppe in die ‚Vocal Group Hall of Fame‘ aufgenommen.

 

Heute steht der Bandname Peter, Paul & Mary
im englischsprachigen Raum für Folkgruppen allgemein.
Nachdem er aber ohne direkten Zusammenhang
mit den Musikern in einem Otto Waalkes-Sketch
(„
English for Runaways – Englisch für Fortgeschrittene“) vorkam,
denken viele junge Deutsche irrtümlich, der Name sei eine Erfindung von Waalkes.

„WONDERFUL! AWESOME! MOVING!“

„Wundervoll! Göttlich! ERGREIFEND!“

On March 26, 1970, Peter Yarrow pled guilty
to taking indecent liberties with a 14-year old girl
in an August 31, 1969, incident at the Shoreham
Hotel prior to a Washington, D.C., concert.
Beginning September 1970 he served 3
months in prison. He was pardoned by President Jimmy Carter in 1981.[1]

 

The trio broke up in 1970 to pursue solo
careers, but found little of the success they
did as a group, although Stookey’s „The Wedding Song
(There Is Love)
“ (written for Yarrow’s marriage to
Marybeth McCarthy
, the niece of senator Eugene McCarthy)
was a hit and has become a wedding standard since its 1971 release.

 

In 1978, they reunited for a concert to protest
nuclear energy, and have recorded albums
together and toured since. They currently play around 25 shows a year.

 

The group was inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 1999.

 

In 2004, Travers was diagnosed with leukemia,
leading to the cancellation of the remaining tour dates
for that year. She received a bone marrow transplant
and is recovering successfully. She and the rest of the
trio resumed their concert tour on December 9, 2005
with a holiday performance at Carnegie Hall and
are scheduled for several additional concerts in 2006.

 

Peter, Paul and Mary received in 2006 the
Sammy Cahn Lifetime Achievement Award from Songwriters Hall of Fame.

 

The trio sang at in Mitchell, South Dakota,
George and Eleanor McGovern Library and Center for
Leadership dedication concert on October 5, 2006.

Lyrics:

LAST NIGHT I HAD THE STRANGEST DREAM

Last night I had the strangest dream,
I’d never dreamed before.
I dreamed the world had all agreed
To put an end to war.

LAST NIGHT I HAD THE STRANGEST DREAM

Last night I had the strangest dream,
I’d never dreamed before.
I dreamed the world had all agreed
To put an end to war.

I dreamed I saw a mighty room,
The room was full of men.
And the paper they were signing said
They’d never fight again.

And when the paper was all signed,
And a million copies made,
They all joined hands and bowed their heads,
And grateful prayers were prayed.

And the people in the streets below
Were dancing ‚round and ‚round,
While swords and guns and uniforms
Were scattered on the ground.

Last night I had the strangest dream,
I’d never dreamed before.
I dreamed the world had all agreed
To put an end to war.
