Noel Paul Stookey – Legend

On this episode of Art of the Song we talk with Noel Paul Stookey, founding member of the 1960s folk group, Peter, Paul and Mary, and co-founder of MusicToLife.ORG.

Created in 2000 by Noel and his daughter, Elizabeth Stookey Sunde, Music to Life builds on the strong historical legacy of social movements’ use of music to educate, recruit, and mobilize. Their mission is to amplify an organization’s message, spark engagement with a cause, and empower activist artists to stand on the front lines of social change.

We spoke with Noel Paul Stookey about the early folk scene in Greenwich Village, and Hope Rises, a compilation album of 15 Music To Life artists from around the country, with diverse backgrounds and styles.
