Gather the Spirit – A Raising of Voices with Jim Scott
Friday May 11, 2018 at UUCCI – Doors open at 6:30, concert at 7. Donation of $10 to 20.
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. It’s a raising of voices and of spirits as Jim leads songs of earth, peace, community, love and just fun – for everyone to join in. A lifelong UU with songs in our Hymnbooks (Gather the Spirit), Jim’s visited over 700 UU churches in 3 decades of travels. He played for years with the Paul Winter Consort and was co-composer of their celebrated Missa Gaia/Earth Mass. Jim’s enchanting manner and conviction moved folk legend Pete Seeger to call him “Some kind of magician.”
There’s a real call to activism – with Jim’s new get-out-the-vote song “The World Needs Your Voice,” his re-writing of James Durst’s gun-sense song, “What We Don’t Need” and his eco-anthem “We Are the Earth” – plus many songs from his new album.
