Our lives took separate paths but Peter Yarrow and I continue to have a loving relationship to this day. I am so grateful to Peter for his ongoing and unwavering support of the film. For our Indiegogo campaign he has arranged access to wonderful perks, including 50 Years of Peter, Paul, and Mary books and cds, a Peter Yarrowhand-painted guitar and more.
