Pete Seeger Songfest -- Remembering Pete through his songs, March 15

Saturday, March 15, 4 p.m., at the Harvard Unitarian Universalist Church, Top of the Common, Harvard.

Suggested donation: $10.

Come honor Pete Seeger by singing many of his well-loved songs including, "If I Had a Hammer," "Turn, Turn, Turn," and "Where have all the flowers gone."

All are welcome, no singing experience necessary. The songfest will be led by composer/guitarist Jim Scott, who knew Pete well and collaborated on many projects with the folk legend. Jim and friends will share stories, quotes, and songs to remember the great contributions Pete Seeger made to our American heritage during his 94 years of life.

Jim Scott is known to many as guitarist with the Paul Winter Consort and co-composer of their celebrated "Missa Gaia/Earth Mass." A prolific composer in his own right, Jim has also become a student of the movement for peace and justice in song, compiling and arranging the "Earth and Spirit Songbook," a collection of over 100 songs of earth and peace by many contemporary composers, including Pete Seeger.
