Mary Rejoins Peter and Paul

Published: 2005-11-30
Mary Travers of the folk group Peter, Paul and Mary will be performing with the guys again for the first time since she was diagnosed with leukemia a year ago. The 69-year-old will perform with Peter Yarrow and Noel Paul Stookey on December 9th at Carnegie Hall in New York City.

The pop folk group gained popularity in the 1960s with tunes like "Blowin' in the Wind," penned by folk legend Bob Dylan, and "Puff the Magic Dragon.".

Silver was diagnosed with leukemia last year and in April of this year received an anonymous bone marrow transplant. Travers hopes one day to meet the generous stranger. "My donor has a lifetime of free concerts to Peter, Paul and Mary," she told Yahoo News.
