Join acclaimed-musician David Coffin for a free, one-hour program at 7 PM on Tuesday, July 1 at Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham. Widely known for his rich, baritone voice and ability to perform on a variety of instruments, David Coffin has performed throughout New England since 1980. He performs an extensive collection of songs from the maritime tradition including sea chanteys, ballads, and the songs of sailors.
At the heart of David's work is traditional and contemporary folk music. He draws on vocal and instrumental music from North America as well as England, Scotland, Ireland, and Brittany. David also serves as the director of the Narration Program for Boston Harbor Cruises, New England's largest tour operator. To date, David has recorded four solo CDs and has participated on numerous other recording projects both vocally and as an instrumentalist. His latest CD, Last Trip Home, was released in the fall of 2009.
