MARY TRAVERS OF PETER, PAUL AND MARY DIES

http://artsbeat.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/09/16/mary-travers-of-peter-paul-and-mary-dies/?ref=global-home
She will long be remembered for her contributions to the 60s movement.

Blowing in the wind is one of my favorite expressions. I still use it from time to time

No disrespect to Ms. Travers is meant, nor to you, Beverly, but Blowing in the Wind was written by Bob Dylan. Just pointing out the writer of those great lyrics.

I enjoyed much of their music catalog. Sorry to hear that Mary Travers has passed away.

I didn't say you wrote the song; although the song is a great catch-all phrase

Actually, "the melody of "Blowin' in the Wind" is Dylan's adaptation of the old Negro spiritual "No More Auction Block". According to Alan Lomax's The Folk Songs of North America, the song originated in Canada and was sung by former slaves who fled there after Britain abolished slavery in 1833. In 1978, Dylan acknowledged the source when he told journalist Marc Rowland: "'Blowin' in the Wind' has always been a spiritual. I took it off a song called 'No More Auction Block' — that's a spiritual and 'Blowin' in the Wind' follows the same feeling."

Thanks Luci for the link on Dylan"Hey people smile on your brother everybody get together, try to love one another right now",
The Youngbloods, Jesse Colin Young. Don't be disrespectful on a thread to honor Mary, from Peter, Paul and Mary.

Too bad.

Saw her solo at Flushing Town Hall back in the 70's nice show. Also saw her with Tom Paxton and some other folkies. Hard to believe she was 72

My favorite of theirs was always, “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?” And I liked Blowing in the wind to.

"Blowing In the Wind" made Dylan famous. Peter Paul and Mary made "Blowing in the Wind" a hit, Bob Dylan's first big one. I saw a tribute at Wolf Trap (open air theater, near DC) to Mary this summer with Peter and Paul. They new the inevitable at that time.

I hope PBS puts on their children's special for Christmas again and again. It is worth listening to for four hours. They had long lasting effects and were one of the most popular early sixties folk groups.

She attended my honeymoon for breakfast at 11:00 ish with her five year old daughter who traveled with her. She had a great sense of humor and great talent.
