    Bill Stines was grandpa's favorite artist.

    “Wedding Song (There Is Love)” is

    an achingly beautiful piece of music, composed and originally performed by Noel Paul Stookey, of the folk group Peter, Paul, and Mary. It had its genesis in 1969, when Peter Yarrow (another member of PPM) asked his fellow musician to bless his upcoming wedding with a song...

    to be stagnating in the last years. Fortunately, now and then some new band with a fresh sound appears, like these Jägerblut (Hunter's blood).
