An Evening with PETER YARROW & WORK O' THE WEAVERS to Benefit the Fund for Reconciliation and Development
85 Main Street, Irvington, NY
Peter Yarrow is best known for his role in 'Peter, Paul and Mary' and creation of several of its most loved songs, including 'Puff, the Magic Dragon', 'Day is Done', 'Light One Candle' and The Great Mandala. He founded Operation Respect, an international program to address bullying in schools, and led three Fellowship for Reconciliation and Development concert tours in Vietnam to raise international awareness of the effects of Agent Orange and funds for its victims. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Yarrow
Peter will be joined by Work o' the Weavers, reprising the engaging activist music of the pioneering folk quartet, the Weavers. http://workotheweavers.com/
This event benefits the locally based Fund for Reconciliation and Development, for 26 years a leader in healing the wounds of conflict with Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Cuba.
Admission at the door is $25 and $37.50. For the deep pocketed and generous, $150 provides $100 as a tax deductible contribution, an invitation to a post-concert reception, and autographed copies of two books by Peter. Get the best seats by booking online: http://irvingtontheater.com/node/172
