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.  Led by composer/guitarist Jim Scott, who knew Pete well and collaborated on many projects with the folk legend, we’ll 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.

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 to call him “Some kind of a magician.”  Jim played for years with the Paul Winter Consort and was co-composer of their celebrated Missa Gaia/Earth Mass. A life-long Unitarian Universalist with songs in hymnbooks (Gather the Spirit), he’s visited over 700 UU churches in more than three decades of travels.
