Program Potpourri

Songs of the sea, songs of the earth, songs of the heart and the spirit. All of these are in Geoff Kaufman's ditty bag. Ballads, work songs, and songs of love; poignant songs of people engaged in life's struggles, humorous glimpses of human foibles, and insights into history. All of these are likely to be woven into one of Geoff's concert performancess, or a particular topic may be chosen for the focus of a special presentation.

Just a note of many thanks for...the words to the good song. Keep writing. Keep singing. There's a song I want to teach the Sloop Singers, but it really needs your tenor voice. It is a thrill to hear you hitting those high notes.
