Description

In the long rich history of Family Groups in American Roots Music, the Chapin family has a special place. When these singers, songwriters and extraordinary live performers come together, magic happens. Tom, Steve, Jen, Abigail and Lily Chapin are all powerful musical artists with active careers and multiple recordings, who just happen to be related, and who love making music together.

Gold Coast Arts Center and Landmark on Main Street are proud to present The Chapin Family in concert Saturday, October 7 at 8 PM at the Jeanne Rimsky Theater at Landmark, 232 Main St, Port Washington, NY 11050.

This extraordinary concert event brings together Harry Chapin’s family and friends, whose successful musical careers are a testament to Harry’s enduring legacy. Scheduled to appear are Tom Chapin, The Harry Chapin Band (Steve Chapin, “Big John” Wallace, Howard Fields, Jonathan Chapin and Clark Wallace), Jen Chapin with Jamie Fox and Stephan Crump, and The Chapin Sisters (Abigail Chapin and Lily Chapin).

The Chapin Family Concert represents the latest collaboration between two highly respected cultural arts organizations, Landmark on Main Street and the Gold Coast Arts Center. The initial idea for the concert came from the Gold Coast Arts Center’s board members and long-time fans of the Chapin family, Micki and Dohn Schildkraut.

Harry Chapin (1942-1981) was one of our most passionate, political, prolific and inspiring songwriters. A devastating auto accident in 1981 cut Harry’s life short, yet he left behind a body of work that his fans continue to treasure decades after his death. Author and singer of classic songs like “Taxi,” “Mr. Tanner,” “Mail Order Annie” and “W-O-L-D,” he is also remembered as a great humanitarian, public advocate and educator, fundraiser, musician, writer, and filmmaker, Harry believed in believing. Because of his extraordinary contributions, Harry Chapin was posthumously awarded the Special Congressional Gold Medal in 1987.

Harry’s music and his passionate idealism, live on in his family, and are perfectly aligned with the missions of both presenting organizations.
