A modern-day folk trio inspired by the music and legacy of Peter, Paul and Mary will be in concert this week at the Ocotillo Performing Arts Center.

A Band Called Honalee is slated to perform at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 13.

Musically accomplished, interactive and energetic, the band’s shows allow audiences to experience this timeless music live onstage once again. The group believes the melodies and messages of the 1960s folk and folk-rock era are just as relevant today as they were when they were first sung – perhaps even more so.

A Band Called Honalee – whose name is a nod to the line “a land called Honalee” from Peter, Paul and Mary’s 1963 hit “Puff, the Magic Dragon” – has made it its mission to share this unique American music with new audiences while rekindling the passion of lifelong fans. Most of all, they celebrate the power of these songs to inspire people and bring them together once again.

Tickets to the show are $20 each and may be purchased online at www.artesiaartscouncil.com or at the OPAC box office, 746-4212.
