Noel Paul Stookey Talks Folk Music, Peter, Paul, and Mary and The Power of Music to Create Change, Plus Music to Life’s Elizabeth Sunde – Episode 527

Folk legend and Grammy winner Noel Paul Stookey joins Nancy to discuss the power of music to create social awareness and change, his journey as one-third of the beloved ’60s folk music trio Peter, Paul, and Mary and their hits like “If I Had a Hammer” “Where Have All the Flowers Gone” and “Blowin’ in The Wind” that quickly became empowering songs during the difficult times of that decade. Plus, Noel discusses the story behind his popular “Wedding Song (There is Love)” and its contribution in fostering the non-profit Music to Life, and his future tour plans (1:53).

In the second segment, Elizabeth Stookey Sunde talks with Nancy about growing up with a famous musician and musical influencer, co-founding the non-profit Music to Life with her father Noel Paul Stookey, her work as its executive director and helping music work for change, and the organization’s new album Hope Rises featuring 15 activist artists of diverse backgrounds, genres, and styles (35:06).
