It’s a raising of voices and of spirits as UU composer and guitarist Jim Scott leads songs of earth, peace, community, love and just fun — for everyone to join in. 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 invite all to get involved with the songs and ideals he raises. A life-long UU with songs in our Hymnbooks (Gather the Spirit), he’s visited over 700 UU churches in more than three decades of travels.
A reception will follow the performance. Suggested donation $10 to $20 sliding scale. Kids under 12 free.
There’s a real call to activism — with a new get-out-the-vote song “The World Needs Your Voice,” his re-writing of James Durst’s anti-gun message in “What We Don’t Need” and Jim’s eco anthem “We Are the Earth” — plus many songs from his new album. You can hear these first two on Jim’s website front page www.Jimscottmusic.com. Jim played for years with the Paul Winter Consort and was co-composer of their celebrated Missa Gaia/Earth Mass. He’s traveled the world and recorded nine albums and created a growing line of choral music. Jim’s enchanting manner and conviction moved folk legend Pete Seeger to call him “Some kind of magician.”
