  • This event has passed.

For the safety of our patrons (as well as our staff and volunteers, the staff at the Duke Energy Center, and of course our traveling guests of honor), the decision has been made to reschedule this Friday’s concert with Peter Yarrow. Luckily, both Peter Yarrow AND Fletcher Theater are available on Saturday, Jan. 30, so that is the new date for the concert! Lobby doors and will call will open at 7 p.m. on Saturday, and the concert will begin at 8 p.m.

If you already have tickets, your tickets will still be valid on Jan. 30. If you cannot use your tickets on that date or have other questions, please contact your original point of sale to find out what options you may have and what steps you will need to take (refund, donation credit, etc).

With more than five decades of songwriting and performing experience, iconic musician Peter Yarrow has many stories to tell. Yarrow’s talents as a creative artist—both with the legendary trio Peter, Paul & Mary and as a solo performer—are frequently directed at using music to convey a message of humanity and caring. His gift for songwriting has produced some of the most moving songs from Peter, Paul & Mary, including “Puff, the Magic Dragon,” “Day is Done,” “Light One Candle” and “The Great Mandala.” As a member of the renowned musical trio, Yarrow has earned multiple gold and platinum albums, as well as numerous Grammys. Yarrow and his bandmates played a central role in bringing the folk renaissance of the 1960s to the hearts and homes of the American public, influencing music and musicians of future generations for many years to come.

The past 13 months has been particularly exciting for Yarrow, bringing with it three projects that highlight the longevity and importance of Peter’s career: A fiftieth anniversary book, CD, and the premier of the PBS special, 50 Years with Peter, Paul and Mary, a program which became one of PBS’s top fundraisers and continues to air on stations cross the country.

His show is remarkable: warm, humorous, contemporary, nostalgic, thoughtful, and inspiring.  He sings songs and tells stories of where we were, where we are, and what we can do now. The national response to the PBS documentary has only further cemented his place, not only as a musical icon of the past, but an important voice that still resonates today.
