MusicWorks today announced that it would present the second of four concerts featuring iconic folk musicians on Thursday, January 14 at Old School Square / Crest Theatre, located at 51 North Swinton Avenue in Delray Beach (one block north of Atlantic Avenue).
As a founding member of Peter, Paul and Mary, Peter Yarrow has entertained, challenged and inspired four generations of music lovers. A Peter Yarrow performance does more than assure a memorable evening of music, camaraderie and “Puff’s special magic” for everyone, young and old alike. The songs that he wrote and performed with his musical compatriots, Mary and Paul, have changed and inspired millions to continue to keep on keepin’ on, hold firm to principle, and not be deterred in the face of adversity. His performances create an environment in which a sense of reassuring commonality is shared at a time when society is deeply concerned for its welfare and its future.
In a recent interview in Indian River Magazine, Yarrow decribes his performance as being “like a Peter Paul and Mary concert in a lot of ways. My repertoire is Peter, Paul and Mary. It’s a legacy of many, many decades now. The difference is that I’m singing alone. I sing the Peter, Paul and Mary repertoire but what I enjoy most is having the audience sing with me. Being a stalwart of the Pete Seeger variety, I’ve always used music as vehicle for creating community not just metaphorically but literally.”
Tickets for Peter Yarrow at Old School Square on January 14 are $75 and $53, plus a $2 historic renovation fee. They can be purchased online at OldSchool.org or by calling the Box Office at 561.243.7922, ext. 1.
The remaining two artists in this series of classic folk rockers at Old School Square are Tom Rush on February 10 and Roger McGuinn of The Byrds on March 11.
