Peter Yarrow brings songwriting to life.
Coming to Outpost in the Burbs for the first time ever is singer/songwriter Peter Yarrow on Friday, Dec. 5. Yarrrow found fame with the 1960s folk music trio Peter, Paul and Mary. Additionally, he co-wrote one of the group’s most famous songs, “Puff, the Magic Dragon” with Leonard Lipton.
According to the Outpost website, Peter Yarrow is looking forward to the show: “Yes, it will be nostalgic for many. But on another level, it will bring them a sense of what is still possible. Yes, they will sing ‘Leaving on a Jet Plane,’ and I will give them a sense of the current history of what this music is doing, and why it’s important. So it will be a history lesson, it will be a singalong that inspires, but it will also assert the importance of the continuation of this kind of music in people’s lives today. And where we’re going from here in those terms. It’s not necessarily a big lecture — it’s inherent in the music. They’ll get it. I know it, ’cause that’s what I do.”
Tickets for the Peter Yarrow show are $28 in advance and can be purchased in person at Keil’s Pharmacy, Terra Tea and Studio042. They can also be purchased online at ticketleap.com.
