Folk Singer Mary Travers, of Peter,Paul and Mary has passed away this evening at Danbury Hospital in Danbury, CT. She had been suffering for several years with Leukemia. She gave much musical pleasure to many generations and her musical contributions will be long remembered by all!

I had the good fortune to see her in concert with the group in Hartford, Ct. almost exactly one year ago. At that time she was on oxygen but she sang as great as ever. The standing ovation at the end of the concert lasted nearly 30 minutes.

Rest in Peace Mary. My thoughts are with your family in their great sadness.
