Paul Winter Consort guitarist / singer Jim Scott to perform at UUCLC 4/16

On Saturday, April 16 at 7 pm,
prolific songwriter and former Paul Winter Consort guitarist Jim Scott will bring a musical celebration of Earth Day to the Kelseyville Senior Center, 5245 3rd Street.  Suggested donation is $10 at the door. The performance is sponsored by the Unitarian Universalist Community of Lake County (UUCLC).

Known to many as the co-composer of the celebrated Missa Gaia/Earth Mass with the Paul Winter Consort and singer of their anthem Common Ground, Jim's gone on to record 7 albums of original music.  A tireless activist for the earth Jim addresses issues of ecology, justice and peace in songs, poetry and short stories with an insight and gentle wit.  Though his guitar work might well stand on its own, it's Jim's lyrical songs that remain his greatest offering.   He transforms any size audience into an intimate gathering with an understated virtuosity and a disarming presence.

In recent years Jim has turned more attention to composing choral music and has compiled and edited the “Earth and Spirit Songbook,” an anthology of 110 songs that feature many contemporary writers who share his passion for the earth.  He leads the Earth and Spirit Chorus in Worcester MA a group gathered to sing this repertoire of songs of earth, justice and peace.  From choral music to soundtracks for documentaries and the PBS series Body and Soul, Jim has made music with a depth of artistry and craft that separates his art from that of many other singer songwriters.  His musical “The Tree and Me” has been given full cast productions in Jamestown NY and Albion MI.  A whole line of Jim's choral compositions and his book of guitar technique “All Scales in All Positions” are published by Hal Leonard Corp.
