Mary Travers of Peter, Paul and Mary
Mary Travers of the singing trio Peter, Paul and Mary has died as a result of complications from cancer treatment. Her voice very much represented the spirit of hope and rebellion (the two going hand in hand) of the '60s. The group's performances of songs like "Leaving on a Jet Plane" and "If I Had a Hammer" and "Blowin' in the Wind" are, needless to say, so very representative of the time.
