Mary, The Magic Alto

Mary Travers of the folk trio, Peter, Paul & Mary passed away this week. I have very fond memories of watching the Peter, Paul & Mary specials on PBS with my mom when I was little. Mom would always, without fail, get choked up at some point while watching AND the waterworks would always, without fail, cause my eyes to roll.

Today, while perusing youtube, I found a video of "500 Miles" and whaddya know?! I found myself feeling...emotional and maybe even a little...choked up.

Mary's voice creates a beautifully wistful song that has the power to evoke all kinds of emotion.

Enjoy :)
