Peter, Paul and Mary
Performing as Paul
in the Peter, Paul and Mary trio, he participated in one of the best-known ensembles of the 1960s phase of the American folk music revival, and included some of his solo songs and extended monologues in their performances and recordings.
In addition to his recordings with the trio, he released a number of solo works, several albums with the ensemble Bodyworks, and some anthologies. He was an important artist in the young Jesus music movement, which would later bloom into the Christian music industry, although his generally liberal political views distinguish him from many such artists.
In 1986, Stookey teamed up with Jim Newton, Paul G. Hill, and Denny Bouchard at Celebration Shop in Texas. The company, now known as Hugworks, uses original musical compositions as music therapy to address the special needs of children. The company has produced three award-winning children's CDs used in hospitals, medical camps and homes across the country.
After Peter, Paul and Mary
Paul performed as a member of Peter, Paul and Mary until the death of Mary in September 2009. His work after Peter, Paul and Mary has emphasized his Christian faith, family life and social concerns. He remains active in the music industry, performing as a solo act, and also performing occasionally with Peter Yarrow.
In January 2011, Stookey participated in several events at Dartmouth College that celebrated the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., including "Music for Social Change with Noel Paul Stookey and Company."
Stookey's best-known composition is "The Wedding Song (There Is Love)", that charted in 1971 and remains popular for performance during wedding services. He wrote the song as a wedding gift for Peter Yarrow
, and refused to perform it for the public until Yarrow requested it at a concert where his wife was present. Stookey assigned the copyright of this song to the Public Domain Foundation.
He also has production credits on albums by several lesser-known singer-songwriters, including Dave Mallett and Gordon Bok. He was the founder of the Neworld Multimedia record label.

Entrevista a Litto Nebbia (I)
Litto Nebbia actuó el pasado 18 de mayo en Barcelona dentro de una pequeña gira española de cuatro conciertos en pequeños locales. Aprovechamos la ocasión para hablar con él poco antes de cumplir los 70. En esta primera entrega de la entrevista, que publicamos en dos partes, hablamos con detalle de seis de los siete discos que ha publicado en estos últimos tres años. Seis obras de géneros muy diferentes que demuestran, una vez más, que Nebbia trasciende los límites del Rock y del relato juvenil que se le adjudicó en sus inicios. En la segunda entrega, que publicaremos próximamente, hablaremos de su faceta como productor, de su nueva autobiografía Mi banda sonora y de lo cerca y lejos que está a la vez entre sí todo el mundo hispánico de la música.
