music notes Shrewsbury Remembers Pete Seegar through His Songs at the Bandstand on the Common. Shrewsbury MassachusettsSHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – Jim Scott and his group will honor Pete Seeger, singing many of his well-loved songs such as If I Had a Hammer, Turn, Turn, Turn, Where Have All the Flowers Gone and many others on August 21, 2014, at 6PM.

All interested singers welcome, no experience necessary.  Or just come and smile along.  Led by composer/guitarist Jim Scott, who knew Pete well and collaborated on many projects with the folk legend, we’ll raise our voices for the causes Pete championed and remember the great contributions to our American heritage Pete made in his 94 years of life. We have lost an icon, but not his legacy of poetry and song to guide and inspire us.

Jim Scott 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 moved Pete Seeger to call him “Some kind of a magician.”  Known to many as guitarist with the Paul Winter Consort and co-composer of their celebrated “Missa Gaia / Earth Mass,” Jim is a prolific composer in his own right.  He 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.  Learn more at jimscottmusic.com.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Library, this program is a part of the Outside the Box grant. A drop-in program. The performance will be at the Bandstand on the Common. In the event of rain, it will be moved to the meeting room at the Library.
