Folk artist Tom Chapin on career, musical family
Folk singer Tom Chapin will be in East Lansing for a couple of performances this weekend. Chapin is the featured artist at this week’s Ten Pound Fiddle concert at the Unitarian Universalist Church on Grove Street in East Lansing. The concert is at 8 p.m. Friday. Chapin will also perform at the city of East Lansing’s Children’s Concert Series on Saturday at 11 a.m. at the Hannah Community Center on Abbot Road.
Chapin says that he likes playing in East Lansing, though he hasn’t been here in a while. "When you come, you find people who remember you and want to hear good music and want to sing," Chapin said.
Tom Chapin has been in the music business for five decades, starting with a family act that included his late brother Harry Chapin. He has a love for family-friendly music, and like lots of folk musicians, he has a big social conscience perspective. In his case, it’s feeding the hungry, a cause Harry Chapin had championed.
