Oral History Information
Peter Yarrow is the Peter in the wildly successful popular folk music trio Peter, Paul, and Mary. During his often musical NAMM Oral History interview, Peter spoke of the role music played during the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s, as well as the anti-war movement during the Vietnam War. The inspiration of Pete Seeger was clearly at the core of his love for folk music and he recalled his great job when Mr. Seeger recorded music Peter had written. His songs were also performed by Peter, Paul and Mary, including two of their big hits, "Puff the Magic Dragon" and "Day is Done."
