His career spans Broadway, TV, documentary and feature films, and the concert stage. With 26 recordings and hundreds of songs in his repertoire, Chapin serves up a tasty mix of story songs, ballads, comedic and political songs, family music, sing-alongs, old-time folk classics and a favorite song or two of his late brother Harry’s. Tom accompanies himself on guitar, banjo and autoharp. 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. In the former role Chapin has established a reputation for insightful, heartfelt songcraft and effortlessly charismatic live performances. In the latter role he engages the hearts, minds and imaginations of young listeners with songs delivered in a sophisticated array of musical styles.
