Tom Chapin

Tom Chapin

An activist songwriter from a famous musical family

The younger brother of Harry Chapin and the son of renowned drummer Jim Chapin, Tom Chapin has the knack of appealing equally to adults and children. He's one of the very few artists who've garnered Grammy nominations in both categories. Tom's last few albums have had a good deal of political content. In tonight's show he'll likely be featuring work from his latest, "Broadsides: A Miscellany of Musical Opinon," with such tracks as "Econo-Me-Oh-My" and "Total Security Solutions, Inc." along with Tom Chapin favorites from his four-decade career. Tom's been honing his way with an audience ever since his days in New York State's 1960s folk scene, and by now he's a tremendous storyteller as well as a continuously vital songwriter. Tom says: "Adult shows contain music from Tom's Grownup recordings, and will most likely include a mix of original songs, a traditional song or two, a few kid's songs and a couple of Harry Chapin songs. The material is not off-color, but the topics may not capture the interest of children."
