Geoff Kaufman, chanteyman at Mystic Seaport and OP Sail, will present a concert of acoustic music with “a pinch of salt” Saturday, July 30, at 7:30 p.m. at the Sail, Power and Steam Museum, 75 Mechanic St. at Sharp’s Point South.

For the past 30 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. Ancient ballads, work songs, and songs of love; poignant songs of people in struggle, humorous glimpses of human foibles, and insights into history — all of these are likely to be woven into one of his concerts.

Tickets are $12, $6 for children, in advance or at the door. For more information on the museum and its programs, call 701-7627 or 596-0200; email; or visit
