City Pier, New London Waterfront Park
You bring the cooler (alcohol is permitted) and we’ll bring Geoff Kaufman, who will delight, entertain, and inform while you cruise past many historic sites and take in the shoreline views from our navy utility boat. Recognized as one of the finest tenors on the folk scene today, Geoff has been leading audiences to find truth, humor and beauty in folk music for over thirty years, singing sailor songs at Mystic Seaport in Connecticut, environmental songs on board the Sloop Clearwater in the Hudson River with the Sloop Singers and Pete Seeger and in solo performances at coffeehouses throughout the U. S. to festivals in Europe. He delights not only in singing, but telling the stories behind the songs, from traditional ballads to contemporary tunes with a spiritual or social context. Many say that Geoff’s storytelling is as good as his remarkable singing as he presents acoustic music with a pinch of salt.
