Peter Yarrow, of the famed 1960s folk group Peter, Paul & Mary, will perform “An Evening of Love and Laughter” to benefit Portland-based Wisdom of the Elders, a Native American nonprofit, 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 14, at Augustana Lutheran Church, which donated use of its facility at 2710 NE 14th Ave.
Yarrow, who wrote some of the trio’s hits, including “Puff, the Magic Dragon” and “Day is Done,” has merged music and social activism in recent decades.

Since 1993, Wisdom has served the Native American Community through cultural programs, including a Northwest Indian Storytelling Festival and a collection of video oral histories of Native elders. Recently, the organization has begun to focus on the effects of climate change on Native communities; its Wisdom Radio for this season focuses on the issue.

Joining Yarrow will be his son Christopher, who will sing and play the washtub base. The younger Yarrow, a Portland resident, plays with local bands Baby Gramps, KingniK and Tevis Hodge Jr.

Tickets, which range from $5 to $60, can be purchased through www.wisdomoftheelders/wisdombenefit. The $60 sponsor ticket includes a meet-and-greet with Yarrow and book signing.

    This would be an amazing Valentines surprise! My wife has been a huge fan for years, and I’d love to take her! How many posts, must a man write down…

    I lost a brother last month at 56.
    A talented musician, a great brother and terribly missed.

    It’ll do my heart well to hear the soul music (I know it’s not soul music in the traditional sense, but when you think it about, it really is all soul music) of Peter as these days with out him turn to weeks and these weeks without him turn to months, then to years and then unavoidably, to a life time with out him.

    I know it would do my wife well as too!

    Gosh! After last week’s Snowmageaddon, I haven’t been out except to go to work (had a curb incident on Thursday and abandoned my car for 4 days; am still a bit traumatized, and we’ve made no plans for Valentine’s Day. Please let me win those tickets! I love Peter Yarrow. My husband and I play guitar and sing, and include Peter, Paul, & Mary often. My favorite is, “Take the Chance.”

    My wife’s been trying to get me out to see him for years, and I could surprise her by bringing her instead! Thanks for the chance!

    This would be the best late birthday present for my dad! His birthday was Feb 1st, but I couldn’t give him a gift. He raised me on this music and loves it so much.

    I hope this is a sing-a-long. I think both my partner and I can go through the catalog together with him. I’m pumped for tonight!
