7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Friday Night Folk is pleased to welcome two great folk performers to the stage for its January 19 concert. Beloved troubadour Geoff Kaufman will take the Friday Night Folk stage with a variety of folk, maritime and Americana music. Joining Geoff will be folksinger-songwriter Sally Rogers. The concert will be held at 7:30pm at All Souls Unitarian-Universalist Congregation at 19 Jay Street in New London.
For the past 28 years, Geoff Kaufman has been leading audiences to find truth, humor, and beauty in folk music. Songs of the sea, songs of the earth, songs of the heart and the spirit – all of these are likely to be woven into Geoff’s concerts. Ancient ballads, work songs, and songs of love; poignant songs of people in struggle, humorous glimpses of human foibles: Geoff has entertained and touched audiences near and far.
In her half of the show, Sally Rogers brings traditional, contemporary and original ballads and song, interwoven with stories take from her life as a performer, a wife, and a mother. She accompanies herself on guitar and Appalachian dulcimer, or performs without accompaniment in a voice that needs no further enhancement. Sally often includes her own compositions, many of which are considered classics of the folk and popular genre.
