Her first appearance was in 1961 in New York's Bitter End coffee house culture, which was very well received.Within a year, Peter, Paul and Mary made her debut (self-titled) album with Pete Seeger songs like "If I Had a Hammer released" and "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?" By 1963, the Group had three albums, including one of her biggest hits made, "Puff the Magic Dragon". They occurred in 1963 March on Washington (where Martin Luther King, Jr., made his famous I Have a Dream speech. The recording of Bob Dylan's "Blowin in the Wind" was the fastest selling record ever releasedWarner Brothers Records and the trio landed at the head of the civil rights movement and peace movement. By 1970, however, the group had broken up so that members could pursue their own solo career to. They have since reunited several times for select concert dates.
