11/30 - Peter Yarrow, Bintliff's,

Peter Yarrow - PBS Sing-Along-Special
Peter Yarrow SING-ALONG SPECIAL is a family celebration of America's favorite folk songs performed by some of America's most beloved folk singers. Starring Peter Yarrow and Noel Paul Stookey of Peter, Paul & Mary, this special also features multiple Grammy winners Mary Chapin Carpenter and Keb' Mo', cello and voice duo Bethany & Rufus, and singer and percussionist Billy Jonas. Uniting this tremendous group of talented performers in duets, trios and multiple ensembles, this concert will inspire and lift the spirit of the whole family with joyous and loving sing-alongs in a theater full of music lovers of all ages.  THE Peter Yarrow SING-ALONG SPECIAL is part of special programming premiering on PBS stations beginning November 27 and airing through December 2010 (check local listings). THE Peter Yarrow SING-ALONG SPECIAL is the first large-scale concert for Peter Yarrow since the passing in September 2009 of Peter, Paul & Mary's Mary Travers. Peter, Paul & Mary, along with Bob Dylan, Judy Collins and other music icons of the 1960s, used the power of song to foster community and engage in conversations about issues of social justice and individual responsibility. Although these songs have been around for generations, their words and messages continue to resonate today. "This concert is about the audience itself," says Peter Yarrow. "It is a gathering of many generations-from the littlest children to the great-grandpas and grandmas-all enjoying the same music, the same message." He adds: "Music shared in this way reminds us that there is an antidote to much of today's mean-spiritedness and intolerance."
