Jim Scott – Composer and Musical Activist and Beloved UU Musician
For more than three decades, Jim Scott has made it his business to create and perform music that celebrates the earth. His songs and poetry have inspired and educated audiences around the world. He has developed presentations for every age group and crafted songs that sensitize his listeners to the beauty of the earth, teaching principles of ecology in memorable verses.
Jim’s next CD: Heart in Another Land is an immersion in Latin, Brazilian and Caribbean rhythms with a bit more of a jazz sensibility. This music it is where his heart has been for a long time and the title refers to Jim’s love of these cultures and sounds so suited to his nylon string classical guitar. There are socially conscious, earth and peace messages, but also, as always, some fun.
