Jim Scott in a Benefit Concert for the Poor People’s Campaign

All Welcome – Suggested donation $10 – $20 sliding scale

Composer Jim Scott will lead a celebration of activism in song – a benefit concert for the Poor People’s Campaign.

Jim Scott has made it his business to create music celebrating the earth and peace. He’s been an activist with his music, on the front lines of many  justice, peace and ecology movements. With a warmth and authenticity he invites all to get involved through lyrical melodies and memorable verses. Jim played with the Paul Winter Consort for years and was co-composer of their celebrated Missa Gaia/Earth Mass. He’s recorded 9 albums, and a growing line of choral music.  A life-long Unitarian Universalist, Jim has visited over 700 UU churches and helped create the Green Sanctuary program.  His songs are in the UU Hymnbooks (Gather the Spirit).  Jim arranged and edited The Earth and Spirit Songbook, an anthology of songs of earth and ecology from many contemporary composers.  His guitar skill and enchanting manner led Pete Seeger to call him “Some kind of a magician.”
