Common Fence Music at Channing Church presents Peter Yarrow
"We're part of a long train ride," is the way Peter Yarrow visualizes the many events that have highlighted a career spanning more than four decades. Yarrow places the success he's had within a greater context, seeing his accomplishments as part of a tradition, to be credited and carried on. "When I was in high school," he recalls, "I heard The Weavers' concert at Carnegie Hall where they sang songs such as 'If I Had a Hammer,' and 'Wasn't That a Time.' It was inspiring, and it showed me the extraordinary effect that music of conscience can have." That lesson launched Peter on a lifelong path that is now, perhaps, in its most vital phase.
Channing Church is the home of a Unitarian/Universalist congregation that heartily supports the arts. The Church was designed with a sensitivity to acoustics and is a fine venue for folk and roots music. This is not a food and beverage venue. Performances are at 8 pm. Doors open at 7:30. Consider dining in one of the islands fine restaurants before or after the performance which will wrap up around 10:30 pm.
