Tom Chapin

Event Type:

Saturday, March 12, 2011 – 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

His music spans styles and generations, encompassing traditional and contemporary folk music and pop.

For more than thirty years, Tom’s remarkable musicianship, great songwriting and personal warmth have sustained his career and commitment to social change. The New York Times calls Tom Chapin “one of the great personalities in contemporary folk music.” He says: “Mine is not a traditional music, but it comes from a tradition. My musical heroes are people like Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie who wrote and sang real songs for real people; for everyone, old, young, and in between.” Tom also works to keep alive the songs of his brother, Harry Chapin, through tribute concerts and other events involving the extended Chapin musical family.
