Rest in Peace, Mary Travers

I grew up singing PP&M songs. I sang them with my friends and at camp. I became a camp counselor, and we sang their songs at camp.

I was so sad to hear that Mary had died. I spent yesterday evening watching YouTube videos of her singing. What a beautiful, melodious voice she had, and how she used that voice for peace and justice.

RIP, Mary. You are missed.


  • We played Puff The Magic Dragon for our kids today in tribute. My 3yo went to bed singing it.

    I also grew up listening to PP&M and SWORE I was "Jackie Paper." It never phased me that he was a boy. lol

    She will indeed be missed.

  • Oh Annie,
    what an impact she (they) had on us. I still can remember singing songs at the Eisman's house.

  • Came across you from a group thread on Ravelry. When I saw your blog titled RIP Mary Travers, I thought back to that day. I as well played the CD's that I have from PP&M. There songs brought back so many memories good and bad of those times and where we are today. She had a beautiful voice.
