Mary Travers lost her battle with leukemia September 17 at the age of 72.
Mary was one third of the Pop-Folk Revival band:
“Peter, Paul and Mary” who had a great deal with making folk music popular in the 1960s.
My Father was a huge fan of these bands when he was a young.
I, in turn, would sneak into my fathers vinyl record collection, and listen to this Trio, and many others the like, when I was a kid.
I think it might of helped developed my strong sense of social responsibility as well, my life long love affair with music.
Mary Travers will be missed.
