Enjoy the timeless music of Peter Paul and Mary with MacDougal Street West, on Saturday, October 19th at 7:00PM.
Peter, Paul and Mary was an American folk group formed in New York City in 1961, during the American folk music revival phenomenon. The trio was composed of tenor Peter Yarrow, baritone Noel Paul Stookey and alto Mary Travers. The group's repertoire included songs written by Yarrow and Stookey, early songs by Bob Dylan as well as covers of other folk musicians. Their music is revived and lives on in the Arizona based group MacDougal Street West.
The new flowering of a vibrant musical tradition was rooted in Greenwich Village of the early 1960's. Now legendary folk singers and songwriters of that era could first be heard nightly in the cafes stretching along fabled MacDougal Street. Named after one of the famous Greenwich Village streets of New York, MacDougal Street West brings the sounds of that Era to the stage.
The MacDougal Street West band members consist of Ron Skelton, Mary Alberts, Rick Shore, and Bill Rice.
Ron Skelton - Guitar, Vocals. Hailing from Lancaster, California, Ron loved music performance from an early age. He has been singing and performing with his guitar since his high school days. Coupling with that his experience of barbershop quartet harmonies has made Ron a polished group or solo performer.
Mary Alberts – Vocals. Having grown up in the sixties, Mary Alberts finds particular joy in keeping alive the good vibe of one of her musical heroes, Mary Travers. You can hear and see the affinity between them in the contemporary Mary's contributions to MacDougal Street West performances. A similar warmth of tone and personality with the original Mary helps listeners harken back to the halcyon days of the Peter, Paul, and Mary experience.
Rick Shore - Guitar, Vocals. In 1962, Peter, Paul and Mary's first album was released. After the album, 11 year old Rick asked if he could learn to play guitar and hasn't stopped learning and playing.
Today great folk still lives on in MacDougal Street West. The urban vibe of Greenwich Village emmanates now from Arizona and elicits memories of exciting times past and hopes for brighter days ahead. Come join the experience of MacDougal Street West for one night only, Saturday, October 19th at 7:00PM.
