A 1960s throwback band will help raise funds for Greenville’s Hope Rescue Mission.
The concert, titled “A Gift for the Homeless and the Hurting,” will take place at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Greenville Community Church, 6596 S. Vining Road. The band Peter, Paul & Mary Remembered of Traverse City is the featured performer.
Admission is a suggested donation of $10 and a gift of a paper products for the Hope Rescue Mission.
Peter, Paul & Mary Remembered consists of Donna Wilson Probes, Lawrence Probes, Jim Hawley and Dave Swan on bass. Reviving many of the well known hits such as “Puff the Magic Dragon,” “If I Had a Hammer,” “Blowin’ in the Wind,” and others, the seasoned musicians have duplicated the exact arrangements of Peter, Paul & Mary to create an authentic replica of the unique sound that dominated the folk scene in the sixties.
Peter, Paul & Mary Remembered made its Traverse City debut in 2010 following conversations with Noel Paul Stookey and Peter Yarrow, the “Peter” and “Paul” of the 1960s group.
“In keeping with the tradition of social activism that is such a signature part of who Peter, Paul & Mary were in the late ’60s and early ’70s we want to make the same kind of contribution to the humanitarian efforts of area communities,” Probes said. “We not only want to keep their music alive, but also the same spirit of compassion for the hurting and disadvantaged among us.”
Tickets may be purchased in advance at Hansen’s Music House by cash or check and at the door for $10. Call Kathy Jo VanderLaan at (616) 498-0374 for more information.
