We’ll honor Pete Seeger, singing many of his well-loved songs such as If I Had a Hammer, Turn, Turn, Turn, Where Have All the Flowers Gone and many others. Composer/guitarist Jim Scott, who knew Pete well and collaborated on many projects with the folk legend, will perform, leading us in raising our voices for the causes Pete championed and remembering the great contributions to our American heritage Pete made in his 94 years of life.
A prolific composer in his own right, Jim brings a warmth, and authenticity that turns any size audience into an intimate gathering. His lyrical melodies, well-crafted words, guitar mastery and humorous surprises moved Pete Seeger to call him “Some kind of a magician.” Known to many as guitarist with the Paul Winter Consort and co-composer of their celebrated “Missa Gaia / Earth Mass,” He has also become a student of the movement for peace and justice in song, compiling and arranging the “Earth and Spirit Songbook,” a collection of over 110 songs of earth and peace by many contemporary composers, including Pete Seeger.
We’re happy to announce that Carolyn Dunn will join Jim on stage, playing bass, and Robert Killian will be sitting in on some of the songs! PLUS! Mindy Simmons and James Hawkins will add their voices to the evening.
