About The Artist

Tom Chapin¹s performances appeal to all ages, his songs tell the stories of our times. Chapin presents a lively, interactive and fun-filled performance which engages the hearts, minds and imaginations of young listeners.  His witty, life-affirming original songs convey positive messages about family, good food and the green earth.  Lend your voice, sing a round, learn a song in sign language and discover the music of a didjeridoo.

In a career that spans five decades, 24 recordings and three Grammy awards, the multi-talented singer-songwriter-guitarist 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 television, radio and films.
As a music-maker, Chapin has maintained two long and productive parallel careers, both as a respected contemporary folk artist and as a pioneer in the field of children's music.
