A Band Called Honalee offers tribute to music of Peter, Paul and Mary and friends

Special to The Leader
Lutcher Theater

ORANGE — “If I Had A Hammer,” “Puff The Magic Dragon” and “Leaving On A Jet Plane” are but some of the songs Lutcher patrons can look forward to hearing as they “take a walk down memory lane” with A Band Called Honalee – A Tribute to the Music of Peter, Paul & Mary and Friends.

Celebrating the folk movement of the 1960s, A Band Called Honalee is scheduled to perform at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 7, at the Lutcher Theater in Orange. Tickets are $25 for adults and $20 for students and are available at www.lutcher.org or by calling the Lutcher Box Office at 409-886-5535.

Musically accomplished, interactive and energetic, the show allows audiences to enjoy Peter, Paul & Mary’s timeless music onstage once again, bringing together four gifted young artists whose passion and enthusiasm for folk music sparks an invigorating return to the era of it’s origin.

Sarah, Chris and Eli, along with upright bass player, Dennis, offer a fresh take on this music, enlivening it with today’s version of the same youthful energy that sparked the folk movement. Their inventive arrangements of Peter, Paul & Mary favorites honor the past, while bringing fresh appreciation to long-time Peter, Paul & Mary fans and new audiences alike.

The show also includes songs by Bob Dylan, Simon and Garfunkle, Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, The Mamas And The Papas, The Weavers, Judy Collins, and other folk and folk/rock artists.

The Frances Ann Lutcher Theater for the Performing Arts is a Stark Cultural Venue and is located at 707 Main in Orange.
