The performance will include original songs by Diane Taraz and Lynn Noel, Nancy Koch and John Berger, and maritime songs, a modern parody of an Irish ballad, and an Appalachian tune with a pogo cello solo by David Rosen. The concert starts at 7:30 p.m., and will be held at 323 Locust St., in Danvers. Tickets cost $20 for adults, $15 for seniors and students and free for children under 13.
