Peter, Paul and Mary (often PP&M) are a musical group from the United States, and were one of the most successful folk-singing groups of the 1960s. The trio is composed of , Noel „Paul” Stookey and Mary Travers.
The group was created and managed by Albert Grossman, who sought to create a folk „supergroup” by bringing together „a tall blonde (Mary Travers), a funny guy (Paul Stookey) and a good looking guy (Peter Yarrow)”. He launched the group in 1961, booking them into the The Bitter End, a coffee house and popular folk venue in New York City’s Greenwich Village. They recorded their first album, Peter, Paul and Mary, the following year. It included „500 Miles”, „Lemon Tree” and the Pete Seeger hit tunes „If I Had a Hammer” (subtitled „(The Hammer Song)”) and „Where Have All the Flowers Gone?”. The album was listed on the Billboard Magazine Top Ten list for ten months and in the Top One Hundred for over three years.
