Wisdom is pleased and honored to announce a benefit concert with Peter Yarrow of the beloved folk trio from the ’60’s “Peter, Paul & Mary.”
For over 50 years Peter has dedicated his life to social justice issues, peace activism, educational initiatives and a better world. On February 14th 2014, Peter will lead us through songs right out of our American history and into contemporary issues of anti-bullying and youth education; songs like “Leaving on a Jet Plane” “Blowing in the Wind” “If I Had a Hammer” “Don’t Laugh at Me” and “Puff, the Magic Dragon.”
Joining Peter on stage, singing and playing the washtub bass, will be his son, Christopher Yarrow, a Portland resident and supporter of Wisdom of the Elders. Christopher plays music regularily with local bands Baby Gramps, KingniK and Tevis Hodge Jr. and is a member of the Mt. Hood Ski Patrol.
Also singing along for a couple of songs will be Aaron Nigel Smith and his One World Chorus of young people. More information about the chorus is at www.oneworldchorus.org.
