Our Times Coffeehouse presents Tom Chapin

Folk music singer/songwriter Tom Chapin takes the stage on Friday, February 17 at 8 PM at Our Times Coffeehouse. He is currently writing and recording what will become his 25th CD, scheduled for release this spring.

In a career that spans five decades, 24 albums and three Grammy awards, Chapin has worked as a recording artist and concert performer, acted on Broadway, and worked extensively in films, television and radio. He has established a reputation for insightful, heartfelt songs and effortlessly charismatic live performances. The New York Times called Chapin “one of the great personalities in contemporary folk music.” Rolling Stone wrote, “Chapin is a man deeply enamored of family life. . .with a penchant for translating everyday situations into upbeat, enjoyable and accessible music. What started as a solo concert literally ended up as a celebration of family, with people of all ages showing their exuberance and having a ball.”

Doors open at 7:15 PM that evening for ticket sales. The suggested donations are $20 adults and $15 students with ID; sorry, no pre-sales are available. Our Times Coffeehouse is in the Ethical Humanist Society building on Old Country Road, two miles west of Meadowbrook Parkway next to the blue water tower.
