In addition to getting to hear Jim speak on Sunday morning, “The Fires of Creation – Reflections on Creativity,” he will also be presenting a concert on Sunday evening, August 11 starting at 7:00pm. So plan for a wonderful evening of music and friendship!
Composer, guitarist and singer Jim Scott brings a warmth and humor with his well-crafted jazz and world music influenced songs. He uses well a prodigious guitar mastery and clear voice, to encourage all to get involved with the messages and ideals of peace, justice and the earth that he raises.
Formerly a member of the Paul Winter Consort, Jim was co-composer of their celebrated “Missa Gaia/Earth Mass” and sang their anthem song “Common Ground.” He has toured the world, recorded a number of CDs of original music and published a growing line of choral works. A co-creator of the “Green Sanctuary” program for churches to become more sustainable, Jim also compiled the “Earth and Spirit Songbook,” an anthology of over 100 songs of earth and peace. He has been artist in residence or visiting faculty at schools such as Oberlin College and enjoys putting young people in touch with their innate creativity and the power of musical expression.
