Peter Yarrow – May 4th Concert w/ Mustard’s Retreat

Peter Yarrow:
In 1995, Peter, Paul and Mary participated in the 25th Anniversary of the Kent State Shootings.  Not only did they perform during the Commemoration, but also conducted a peace workshop in the afternoon, and later that evening, PP&M performed a benefit concert in Memorial Gym. 100% of the profits were utilized to create the May 4th Scholarship.  Peter Yarrow was the catalyst behind the entire activity.
In addition to being a founding member of Peter, Paul and Mary, Yarrow has been an activist all his adult life. From the Vietnam War to contemporary issues. 
Today, Yarrow’s concerts may include folk classics, Puff The Magic Dragon, If I Had A Hammer, Light One Candle, Day Is Done, Blowin’ In The Wind, Where Have All The Flowers Gone, Leaving On A Jet Plane as well as Peter’s more contemporary songs.
Peter, along with Paul & Mary, have provided the soundtrack for generations. 
But this will be much more than a nostalgia show. Peter will turn The Kent Stage into his living room while telling stories and singing memorable songs. It will be an evening rooted in the historic milestones of his past, yet focused on the current issues that continue to call him to activism. 
Be prepared to reminisce, clap, sing, cry and laugh on May 4, 2024 when Peter Yarrow wraps up the 54th May 4th Commemoration at The Kent Stage. 
Mustard’s Retreat:
Mustard’s Retreat has been delighting audiences by telling stories for 40 years- they are witty, insightful, fun, and profound, as well as accomplished songwriters and musician ( guitars, dulcimer, electric bass, mandolin, harmonica, pennywhistle). In addition to being raconteurs and storytellers, they will give you things to laugh about for days to come and remember for years. Tales of stupid frogs, wandering cadavers, haunted bridges and techo-nerds, memories of small towns and high school, first loves and last…and places we’ve been or maybe just dreamed of.
