ROCKLAND, Maine – On Saturday, June 21, 2014, Pete Seeger Songfest at First Universalist Church

Join composer/guitarist Jim Scott, to honor Pete Seeger in a concert on Saturday, June 21, 7:30 p.m. at the First Universalist Church in Rockland on 345 Broadway. We’ll 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. All interested singers welcome, no experience necessary. Scott, who knew Pete Seeger well and collaborated on many projects with the folk legend, will inspire us to raise our voices for the causes Seeger championed and remember the great contributions to our American heritage Seeger 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. Some written music Jim has arranged will be provided, and all will be able to join in by ear and on the spot teaching. Celebrate the Summer Solstice with this evening songfest. Tickets are $10 at the door. For more information, call 594-8750.

Jim Scott also will be leading worship on Sunday, June 22 at the First Universalist Church in Rockland at 10 a.m. This will be a service for all ages using music and poetry to deepen our commitment to peace, justice and caring for Earth.
