Any David Jones fans out there? This British-born singer is going to be appearing at the Seaman's Church Institute in New York City on the evening of July 19, 2001. That's a Thursday, and the show will start at 8 PM. That gives you enough time to get home, freshen up, and maybe get a bite to eat before stepping out.
The Seaman's Church Institute is at 241 Water Street, just a short walk north from the South Street Seaport Museum. The concert will take place in the Seafarers' Club on the second floor.
David Jones has an enormous repertoire of songs from both sides of the Atlantic. He sings both a capella and with guitar or concertina accompaniment, and he involves his audience in refrains and choruses ranging from boisterous to sentimental. And he's a damn funny story teller as well. Maybe some of you remember David from Poor Old Horse.
This concert is a special summer addition to the New York Pinewoods Folk Music Club "Folk Off-Broadway" series. General admission is $10. NYPFMC members pay just $9.
