“Puff the Magic Dragon”. . . . Peter, Paul , and Mary

Image result for Image of Peter and Paul of Peter , Paul and Mary

Saturday night. I had a bit of nostalgia seeing and more importantly hearing these giants of my teenage years. I loved Peter, Paul , and Mary. . . then and now.  They are folk singers and along with Mary Travers. Sadly Mary is gone, lost to cancer a few years ago, but the guys are still singing  ever so clearly and sweetly accompanied only by  acoustic guitars. Folk music is known  a force for civil rights, social , cultural , and political force just as the marches and protests.

Interesting that today, after 50 years  there are still  wars and  injustice in the world with marches and demonstrations.  The popular music is  different but there are still themes of anti-war, pro-justice for all, and anti-bullying !

The audience sang every word of every song and applauding  enthusiastically.  Remembering  long ago and far away when we were young. . . . . . . . . . was all good!

    Use to love how before they went on stage they had to do the ‘hummies’. Beautiful Mary always made sure I was included in the group hug and hums next to her. Worked just Mary and Peter one time and Peter went on and on about how Puff had nothing to do with smoking a joint. Finally, Mary went on stage to join him i singing the song. She grabbed the mic and asked the audience, ‘Don’t you sometimes find Peter a little appalling’?
