Geoff Kaufman, chanteyman at Mystic Seaport and OP Sail, will present a concert of acoustic music with a pinch of salt Saturday, Aug. 16, at 7:30 p.m. at the Sail, Power and Steam Museum at Sharp’s Point South.

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, Kaufman has entertained and touched audiences near and far. Songs of the sea, songs of the earth, songs of the heart and the spirit — all of these are in Kaufman's ditty bag.

Tickets are $12, $6 for children, in advance or at the door. Sharp’s Point South is at 75 Mechanic St. For more information on the museum and its programs, call 701-7627 or 596-0200; email; or visit
