  “Peter” is performed by Founder and Director; Peter Gordon.  Peter is a trained vocal professional and theatrical director who recently performed at the Venetian Hotel and Resort singing Opera and light Italian favorites. He grew up in Millburn, New Jersey where in High School he was a member and leader of the Millburnairs. It was there he met Lorre Wyatt and was greatly influenced by Lorre's original songs and guitar style. It was the music of Peter Paul and Mary that caught his attention in 7th grade and within days, purchased a guitar and started teaching himself how to play, in addition to his formal training on the violin. Peter was well into song leading and playing guitar when the “folk music” craze came out from Greenwich Village. His father had a business a few blocks away from Washington Square in NYC, and as a teenager he spent many weekends learning from the masters like Pete Seeger, The Weavers, Lorre Wyatt, Phil Ochs, Tom Paxton, Dave Van Ronk, John Hammond, Judy Collins, Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, and Peter Paul and Mary. 15 years ago, Peter was reading a book by Max Lucado entitled “Cure for the Common Life”.  Max suggests that we find the sweet spot in our life, like a golfer or baseball player when they find the best place in their swing for the optimum results. Peter remembered back in High School when he loved singing the music of Peter Paul and Mary. The results, “PETER PAUL AND MARY ALIVE”!

 

“Mary” is sung by Joanie Brown.  Joanie, although new to the professional stage, has found her calling in entertainment. Her vocals are strong and beautiful. She has the clarity and youthfulness of the early Mary Travers, and her performance will captivate you with her unique interpretation. Joanie has been singing and dancing as far back as she can remember; however, academic pursuits in engineering and then later in natural medicine and acupuncture meant that singing and performing would have to wait. Fast forward to the present; Joanie has enjoyed singing in several venues around Las Vegas. She performed in a Ribbon of Life – Golden Rainbow production show, and more recently in a showcase variety show called Unstoppable with Guinness Book of World record holder, Nino Frediani. Joanie’s progressive, yet compassionate nature resonates in the music of Peter, Paul, and Mary with their uncompromising message of freedom, justice and love. She is thrilled to be able to share the music and messages of Peter Paul and Mary and is dedicated to helping “Carry It On”!

DUTCH CLAPP  Sings and plays the part of Noel Paul Stookey

“Paul” is performed by Dutch Clapp. He has been playing guitar since he was 8 years old. At age 12, when the ’60s folk revival began, it was Peter, Paul & Mary who inspired him to become serious about music. He modeled his playing and vocal style after Paul Stookey. In 2014, Dutch rekindled a relationship from back in High School with his “Mary”, now his wife. Together they rose to be the most popular singing group in High School. Drafted into the Viet Nam war, Dutch continued to entertain the troops in France, Germany and in the states, encouraging countless soldiers a long way from home. After receiving his BA degree in film and television production, Dutch concentrated on composing movie scores. He performed regularly for over 20 years playing bass all around Las Vegas. His standard was playing classic rock, country, blues, and jazz. Now he is back with his first love, singing the music of Peter, Paul & Mary.

KRUGER
Sings and plays the 
part of
Noel Paul Stookey

 

"Paul" is also performed by Will Kruger.  Will shares a style that recalls many of his earliest folk music influences, among them, Peter, Paul and Mary, Simon & Garfunkel, Gordon Lightfoot, John Denver and James Taylor in particular.

He's toured nationally, sharing his "Folk Legend's Tribute Show" at house concerts, libraries, conservation events, coffee houses, corporate functions and larger auditoriums in addition to appearances at a number of Nashville venues. 


Four of his songs were featured in the films, "God Where Are You" and "Grace Of The Father." In addition, he played the part of Noel Paul Stookey in the nationally touring Las Vegas tribute group, "Peter Paul & Mary Alive," for several years, and is still part of the team when not performing as a solo artist.
 Kruger, who performs regularly in East Tennessee at The Smoky Mountain Brewery, The Listening Room Cafe, Calhoun's, and The Abbey, said he's been playing music over 50 years. "Music can convey emotion on so many levels," he said. "Music does that for me. The songs that I write touch on love, relationships, and faith. If I can communicate those things with my audience and touch their hearts, then all the work that I do is well worth it. I have a saying: 'Have I ever told you how much I love music?"'
