In 1986, the legendary trio Peter, Paul and Mary marked their 25th anniversary with the taping of their very first PBS special. Now, two and a half decades later, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the formation of the group in Greenwich Village, this joyous yet deeply moving live concert is being re-broadcast.

"Peter, Paul And Mary 25th Anniversary Concert" features songs that became, for many, the soundtrack of their generation. In an era in which folk music became America’s messenger of hope, Peter, Paul and Mary sounded a call to conscience that, to this day, remains an enduring part of our national quest for equity and justice.

Songs include such timeless classics as “Puff, the Magic Dragon,” “If I Had a Hammer,” “Blowin’ in the Wind,” “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?” and “Leaving on a Jet Plane.”
