Mary Travers

Mary Travers (of Peter, Paul and Mary) died yesterday.

Peter, Paul and Mary were enormously popular during the pre-Beatles '60s folk boom, and Travers was a big reason. She had a magnificent, clear voice.

The trio split up in 1970 to pursue solo careers. Was there some kind of legislation back then that popular music groups had to split up by 1970?
