Troubadour Bob Zentz will perform Friday, Aug. 13 at 7:30 p.m. at the Sail, Power and Steam Museum at Sharp’s Point South, 75 Mechanic St.

A Zentz concert serves up a smorgasbord of contemporary, traditional and original songs, tunes and chat, linked by the artist’s philosophic perspective, thematic logic and a strong sense of history, humanity and humor. In performance, his audiences become involved and together they create a spirit of community through shared choruses and related ideas. From traditional Celtic tunes and ballads to science fiction songs and sea chanteys, each show is testimony to Zentz’s vast repertoire and varied personal interests.

Over the years, Zentz has participated in many folk ventures, near and far. As a performer, he is a prolific musician, playing several dozen instruments in a repertoire of more than 2,000 songs. His albums span the genres of folk, traditional, Celtic and maritime music and beyond.

Tickets are $10. Doors will open 7 p.m. for coffee and kibitzing. For more information on this concert and the Sail, Power and Steam Museum, call 701-7627; send e-mail to; or visit
