Watch Musical Legacies, Sunday March 4

Do you ever find yourself clicking through your TV guide wondering what show to watch next? Let me help by saying, “the answer my friend is blowin’ in the wind…” That’s right, let the legendary Peter, Paul & Mary guide you right to your local PBS channel.

That was 1966. And on Sunday, March 4 at 8p, PBS is re-releasing the Peter Paul & Mary: 25th Anniversary Concert in celebration of 50 years! Perhaps as much as anyone, in a period of great turbulence and transformation, Peter, Paul and Mary inspired America to be the best we could be. That, indeed, is a formidable legacy and one that has made this trio and its music a true and enduring national treasure.

And as we draw closer to St. Patrick’s Day, dig through our closets for green shirts, and dream of Guinness, tune in on Sunday, March 4 at 10p and enjoy a warm and nostalgic parade of Irish favorites from the past, When Irish Eyes are Smiling: An Irish Parade of Stars.

Hear some of Ireland's most beloved ballads and folk songs, performed by some of the world's greatest vocalists. Among the traditional favorites to be featured are "Too Ra Loo Ra Loo Ra," "Molly Malone," "McNamara's Band," "It's A Long Way To Tipperary," "Danny Boy" and "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling”.

Lucky shamrocks! Check out the sneak peak:
