Peter Yarrow will perform at the Art of Peace Concert on Sunday in Tyler.

With singing partners Mary Travers and Paul Stookey, Yarrow was a member of the iconic trio, of Peter, Paul and Mary, which supported civil rights and anti-war causes in the 1960s and 1970s.

The trio’s many hits include “Where Have all the Flowers Gone,” “500 Miles,” “Puff the Magic Dragon,” “Blowin’ in the Wind,” “If I had a Hammer” and “Leaving on a Jet Plane.”

The concert is set for 7 p.m. at the theater on the square in downtown Tyler. Tickets range from $20 to $35 and can be ordered through the venue website libertytyler.com or at the box office before the concert.

The Art of Peace festival promotes cooperation and understanding through fellowship, dialogue, music, poetry and art. Yarrow will be performing ballads of hope, peace and love, according to the festival’s website.

In 2000, Yarrow founded a nonprofit organization that aims to reduce school violence by teaching children tolerance and respect for diversity, according to his biography.
