Event Description

Songs and Stories for a Small Planet
with Jackson Gillman and Pierre Giono
Events @ Listening Tree Co-op launches our Spoken Word! series with treasured Cape Cod storyteller Jackson Gillman. An open mic hoot will follow, along with a potluck and tour of Listening Tree's farm.

Celebrate spring with an afternoon of Songs & Stories for a Small Planet. Gillman will be performing along with a visiting colleague, Pierre Giono, who will recount his grandfather Jean’s story of The Man Who Planted Hope. In it, Giono retells his moving encounters with Elzeard Bouffier, a reclusive shepherd/tree planter in Provence. Wendell Berry said, "In the figure of Elzeard Bouffier, Giono summarizes the best that can be said of our species.”

Jackson Gillman’s ecology background from the College of the Atlantic informs much of his work, with a wide variety of nature-oriented programs in repertoire. He has performed for many environmental groups including the North American Alliance for Environmental Education. And when all is said and sung, it is apparent that there is an underlying foundation of beneficence, hope and spirit infusing his work.
