Geoff Kaufman, chanteyman at Mystic Seaport and Operation Sail, will present a concert of acoustic music with a pinch of salt Saturday, July 27, at 7:30 p.m. at the Sail, Power and Steam Museum at Sharp’s Point South. Tickets are $12, $6 for children, in advance or at the door.

For the past 28 years, Kaufman has been leading audiences to find truth, humor and beauty in folk music, whether singing environmental songs on board the sloop Clearwater in the Hudson River or in performances at coffeehouses throughout the Northeast United States and festivals in Europe. Songs of the sea, songs of the earth, songs of the heart and the spirit are all in Kaufman's ditty bag.

Sharp’s Point South is at 75 Mechanic St. For more information, call 701-7627 or 596-0200; email; or visit
