American singer who teamed up with Peter Yarrow and Paul Stookey in 1961 as the singing group "Peter, Paul and Mary." Building their reputation on folk songs and ballads, they were familiar figures on campuses and protest platforms. Their many hits throughout the '60s included "Blowin' in the Wind," "Go Tell it to the Mountain" and "Puff, the Magic Dragon." They were touring over 200 days a year at their peak and by 1995 was still touring about 60 dates a year, winning a fourth generation of fans. In early 1995 they released their "Life Journeys."

Travers has two daughters and two granddaughters and lives in Connecticut. The family demonstrated their unity when she, her mom and her grown daughter were all arrested during an anti-apartheid protest.

On December 7, 2004, the singer’s publicist announced that Travers is suffering from a form of leukemia and is undergoing chemotherapy. She expects to be in remission in three months and to tour with her group Peter, Paul and Mary in February 2005.

She died in Danbury, CT on September 16, 2009 of complications from a bone-marrow transplant and other treatment that she had received for leukemia.
