Peter Paul & Mary – June, 2007 in concert at “The Orleans” Casino Showroom in Las Vegas Nevada. (Fan video, the sound is not great. Though, it is recent and has excerpts from several great songs.) It also shows Mary’s wonderful spirit, with the big bow at the end.

Powerful audio with a still photo: Joan Baez and Mary Travers team up to sing “Lonesome Valley” live at the 1966 Newport Folk Festival. Includes a verse to “join the union” and “join the pickets.” (The audience response to this is fabulous! People are passionately shouting, more! more! more!)

  1. We saw PPM play Arlo’s Thanksgiving show that was a tribute to Harold Leventhal. They were wonderful. I’m glad I got a chance to see them
