Tom Chapin at Friday Night Folk

Why is there only one Mount Rushmore? Why can't there be more carved precipices depicting faces of four important people?

If, for example, one such peak were to be devoted to iconic contemporary folk musicians, we can all agree that one of them would be Tom Chapin, right? And, if the sculptor in charge of carving the visage of Chapin needs to see him up close and personal, why, it so happens Chapin will perform for the Friday Night Folk series in New London's All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church!

Over a half-century career, Chapin has won three Grammy awards and recorded 23 albums including his latest, "The Incredible Flexible You," a disc of kid-friendly/adult-pleasing tunes centered around the idea of helpful clues for social situations. Chapin is also committed to work in the WhyHunger charity founded by his late brother, songwriter Harry Chapin.
