Lonesome Traveler w/ Peter Yarrow
AMERICAN FOLK FROM WOODY GUTHRIE TO BOB DYLAN AND BEYOND
...including the music of Pete Seeger, The Kingston Trio, Peter Paul & Mary, Joni Mitchell, The Byrds, Joan Baez, Crosby Stills & Nash, Leonard Cohen and more

Experience the enduring power and popularity of American folk music with Lonesome Traveler, the stirring concert version of the acclaimed Off-Broadway musical that the New York Times called “illuminating…revelatory…achingly beautiful.” The show celebrates the music of great folk artists including Woody Guthrie, Leadbelly, Pete Seeger and the Weavers, The Limeliters, Peter, Paul and Mary, Bob Dylan, The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Crosby Stills and Nash, Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, and Simon & Garfunkel, with a special tribute to Leonard Cohen.

Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul & Mary fame will join these charismatic young singers and multi-instrumentalists as they return us to a time when music brought us together – when it changed us. This unforgettable concert event features patriotic songs, church hymns, union anthems and songs of protest, with multi-media projections that take us from the 1920s to the 1970s– from the front porches of Appalachia to the nightclubs of San Francisco and New York – from the festival stages of Newport to the sound stages of Los Angeles. Songs like: “If I Had a Hammer,“ “Puff The Magic Dragon,” “This Land is Your Land,” “This Little Light of Mine,” “Blowin in the Wind”, “Turn, Turn Turn”, “The Times They are A Changing” and “Hallelujah.”

Folk legend Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul & Mary has enthusiastically endorsed the show and will be appearing as can be booked to appear in the production as a special guest star.

Lonesome Traveler has previously played to packed houses in New York and California; the show was created by NAACP Award-winner James O’Neil and Tony nominee Dan Wheetman. Orchestrations are by Grammy Award-winner George Grove of The Kingston Trio.

An inspiring evening of great music, Lonesome Traveler presents a revealing perspective of the roots forever embedded in our culture, bringing together audiences of all ages.
