Pete Seeger SongFest with Jim Scott
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. All interested singers welcome, no experience necessary. Led by composer/guitarist Jim Scott, who knew Pete well and collaborated on many projects with the folk legend, well raise our voices for the causes Pete championed and remember the great contributions to our American heritage Pete made in his 94 years of life. Joining Jim on Stage is Carolyn Dunn on bass, and Robert Killian will be sitting in on some songs. Mindy Simmons and James Hawkins will add their voices to the evening.
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.
