Peter, Paul and Mary, no more.

Mary Travers has died.

Peter, Paul and Mary's songs were the songs of my childhood. It is melodies from pre-adolescence that live deepest in your heart; not the songs others would define you by from confused adolescence, yearning for cool. These songs transcend such callow transience.

Here she is singing "5oo Miles" and "If I had a Hammer".

A voice of beauty about justice and freedom.
