Noel Paul Stookey - Hope Rises

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 Music To Life Dot 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 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.

We close this week's show with the Mick Jagger / Keith Richard song Salt of the Earth, as produced by Art of the Song alum, Sara Hickman. The Hard Working People Project was created to bring awareness to the fact so many are working tirelessly and courageously during this time of covid... from mail carriers, nurses, doctors, grocery store employees, mom & pop shop owners, garbage collectors, non-profits, protestors, teachers, neighbors.
