Peter Paul And Mary Bio

Peter, Paul and Mary were an American folk-singing trio who ultimately became one of the biggest acts of the 1960s. The trio was composed of Peter Yarrow, Paul Stookey, and Mary Travers.

Mary Travers has said she was influenced by Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, and the Weavers. In the documentary Peter, Paul & Mary: Carry It On — A Musical Legacy  members of The Weavers discuss how Peter, Paul and Mary took over the torch of the social commentary of folk music in the 1960s. The group paid tribute to some of their folk mentors and contemporaries in their "Lifeline Concert" in 2004.

Manager Albert Grossman  created Peter, Paul and Mary in 1961, after auditioning several singers in the New York folk scene. After rehearsing them out of town in Miami, Grossman booked them into The Bitter End, a coffee house and popular folk music venue in New York City's Greenwich Village. They recorded their first album, Peter, Paul and Mary, the following year.
