Peter Yarrow

Biography

"We're part of a long train ride," is the way Peter Yarrow visualizes the many events that have highlighted a career three decades long. With characteristic care, Yarrow places the success he's had within a greater context, seeing his accomplishments as part of a tradition, to be credited and carried on. "When I was in high school, I heard The Weavers sing 'If I had a Hammer" at Carnegie Hall," he recalled. "It was inspiring, and it showed me the extraordinary effect that music of conscience can have." That lesson was one which Peter Yarrow took to heart.

I would like to know about the twelve string guitar that has the balalaika shape on the bottom. It has such a beautiful tone. My husband says he's never seen another like it.

I am peace

Greetings, I would like to thank Peter Yarrow for serenading the Veterans for Peace on March 20, 2012 at the Vance monument in Asheville, NC. His guitar had such a beautiful sound, I do believe it was made in heaven.Thank you Peter for all you do! I thought you looked very familiar but couldn't put my finger on from where until just after you left. I so wish I had given you a hug! (i'm the only woman that was there that day, I was standing just behind you). I do hope you get this message; An abundance of Love and Light to you and yours!Peace will prevail, Debralee Williams

I have been a fan of yours [ Peter, Paul & Mary]since the sixties, played guitar at the 5th Estate in Hollywood on Sunset of La Cienega. For months I have wanted to express my most sincere sentiments on the passing of Mary Travers, your musical collective voice, musical partner and long time friend. My life has lost a significant jewel and I most proud of you, your heritage, what you all stood for. Peace, equality of man just outright warmth. To you and Noel Paul again I say you three gave me strength to get to 64 years of age. God Bless you.
