About Tom Chapin
In a career that spans five decades, 24 albums and three Grammy awards, Hudson Valley Troubadour Tom Chapin 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 films, television and radio. As a music-maker, the multi-talented singer/songwriter/guitarist 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. In both roles, Chapin has established a reputation for insightful, heartfelt songcraft and effortlessly charismatic live performances.
Son of noted jazz drummer Jim Chapin and brother to fellow recording artists Steve and Harry, Tom returns to Jamestown for his first performance headlining Rolling Hills Radio. He performed on The Reg stage in 2014 in “Harry Chapin: A Family Celebration” and in the Studio Theater with his daughters Lily and Abigail.
