Rockland — The Sail Power, and Steam Museum at Sharp’s Point South will welcome back Larry Kaplan for an evening of folksong Saturday, Sept. 13, beginning 7:30 p.m.

Kaplan’s music is known widely in both the United States and abroad for its strong storytelling and for its simple and beautiful melody lines; and has been sung and recorded by many contemporary and traditional folk artists around the world. Accompanying himself on guitar and banjo, Kaplan offers works that have deep roots in New England and respectfully capture the spirit that derives from small, often quiet events in history that have shaped the New England spirit — some serious, some funny, many eccentric.

Kaplan has just released a new CD through Folk Legacy Records “Songs For An August Moon,” and will be introducing a new offering of music from that recording along with old favorites.

Tickets are $12 and reservations are recommended; call 701-7627. The Sail, Power, and Steam Museum is located at 75 Mechanic St., and the performance hall is wheelchair accessible.
