Troubadour Concert Series Tom Chapin

Troubadour Concert Series: Tom Chapin

Iconic singer, songwriter, and storyteller Tom Chapin will perform at the Troubadour Acoustic Concert Series on Friday, March 1 at 7:30pm at the Morristown Unitarian Fellowship, 21 Normandy Heights Rd., Morristown. Award-winning guitarist Steve Gibb will open.

Three-time GRAMMY winner Tom Chapin‘s music spans generations from the heady Greenwich Village days when he performed with his brothers, Harry and Steve, and their father, Jim. He serves up a tasty mix of story songs, ballads, comedic, political songs, family music, sing-alongs, old-time folk classics, and a favorite song or two by his late brother, Harry Chapin. He has maintained two long and productive parallel careers, both as a highly respected contemporary folk artist and as a pioneer in the field of children’s music. Among the best-known songs he has written or co-written are “This Pretty Planet,” “Not on the Test” (a commentary about trends in education), and a waltz titled “Happy Birthday” (using a melody from the opera, The Merry Widow). With his guitar, banjo, and autoharp, plus gentle humor, audience inclusiveness, and a concern for the Earth and its resources, Chapin puts on a memorable show. The New York Times called him “one of the great personalities in contemporary folk music.”

Steve Gibb is an award-winning Scottish guitarist and composer now based in the US where he has played on several hit Broadway shows including Jersey Boys, Beautiful, School of Rock, Dear Evan Hansen and Shucked. Steve has also played alongside a variety of artists – some famous, some not famous, and some infamous! They include Eartha Kitt, Britney Spears, John Turturro, Petula Clark, Il Divo and Meatloaf. In 2021, Steve released his first solo fingerstyle album, “The Boatman”, which Acoustic Guitar Magazine called “A winner on every level” and was the Ark of Music’s #1 Album of the Year.

The event is part of The Troubadour Acoustic Concert Series, sponsored by The Folk Project each Friday evening at the Fellowship. Admission is $10.00 per adult at the door.
