Green Flash Summer Concert Series at Birch Aquarium

May 14, 2010 | By | Reply More

Since I posted the line-up for the Green Flash Concerts at Birch Aquarium, legendary folk singers Peter Yarrow and Noel Paul Stookey of Peter, Paul and Mary have been signed to perform a special concert on Saturday, September 11, 2010. This is sure to be a highlight of this year’s Green Flash Summer Concert Series at Birch Aquarium.

Doors open at 7 p.m. Concert begins at 7:30 p.m. General admission: $45-$100 with RSVP. Reservations: 858-534-4109; Ages 21+ only.

Yarrow and Stookey, ­along with bandmate Mary Travers – who died in 2009 after a battle with leukemia – comprised one of the most influential musical groups of the socially turbulent 1960s. Their popular songs such as “Blowin’ in the Wind,” “If I Had a Hammer” and “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?” became enduring anthems of the 1960’s protest movement. Throughout their career, the trio won five Grammys, produced more than a dozen Top 40 hits ­of which six ascended into the Top 10 ­ as well as eight gold and five platinum albums.

I just can’t imagine a more fitting way to acknowledge the events of September 11, 2001, than to watch the sun set into the ocean from the Birch Aquarium while listening to the thought-provoking music of these folk icons.

About the Author ()

I live in La Jolla and I'm a travel writer, so in addition to enjoying my home town's great weather, beautiful surroundings, and range of cultural and recreational options, I also see La Jolla - and the rest of San Diego - as a travel destination. And what I see sometimes drives me batty. People vacation in La Jolla, but don't take advantage of everything our community offers, so I decided to start this blog and provide insider advice for out-of-towners. Hey. I figure if I can write insider tips about exotic destinations on Authentic Luxury Travel, I ought to be able to lead readers off the beaten path that starts just outside my front door. In the process, I'm having fun revisiting my favorite places and discovering some new ones. Travel writers are naturally snoopy, and this blog is my excuse to have a good ol' sticky beak around my home town. I hope you find it helpful. If you are coming to La Jolla or another area of San Diego and would like my help in planning your trip, please read "Need Help Planning Your Trip" and then email me at Elizabeth Hansen
