Fri23Feb20188:00 PMCrossings Event at the Zumbrota State Theatre
Contemporary folk music icon Tom Chapin serves up a mix of story songs, ballads, comedic and political songs, family music, sing-alongs, old-time folk classics and a song or two of his late brother Harry's. Chapin accompanies himself on acoustic guitar, banjo and autoharp on Fri, Feb. 23 at 7:30pm at the Zumbrota State Theatre.
In a career that spans five decades, 25 recordings and three Grammy awards, the multi-talented singer-songwriter-guitarist has covered an incredible amount of creative ground. In addition to his work as a recording artist and concert performer, Chapin has acted on Broadway, as well as working extensively in television, radio and films.
As a music-maker, Chapin has maintained two long and productive parallel careers, both as a respected contemporary folk artist and as a pioneer in the field of children's music. Chapin has established a reputation for insightful, heartfelt songcraft, masterful fingerpicking, and charismatic live performance.
Chapin is also a board member of WhyHunger, the organization which Tom's older brother, the late singer-songwriter/activist Harry Chapin, founded in 1975. He also remains active in a variety of environmental causes, as well as efforts on behalf of music and the arts in our public schools.
