Southeastern Louisiana University’s Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts will present “Lonesome Traveler: The Concert with Peter Yarrow” in a one-time only performance.
Scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 12, the concert will take place in the downtown Hammond theatre, located at 220 East Thomas Street.
Columbia Theatre Director Roy Blackwood said audience members will experience the enduring power of folk music with this concert version of the Off-Broadway musical.

The show celebrates the music of great folk artists including Woody Guthrie, Leadbelly, Pete Seeger and the Weavers, The Limeliters, Peter, Paul and Mary, Bob Dylan, The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Crosby Stills and Nash, Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, and Simon and Garfunkel, with a special tribute to Leonard Cohen.
