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 who have active careers and multiple recordings, who just happen to be related, and who love making music together.
Harry Chapin (1942 - 1981) was one of our most passionate, political, prolific and inspiring songwriters. Author and singer of classic songs like “Taxi,” “Mr. Tanner,” “Mail Order Annie” and “W•O•L•D.” 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. He is also remembered as a great humanitarian: public advocate and educator, fund-raiser, musician, writer, filmmaker, Harry believed in believing. Because of his extraordinary contributions, Harry Chapin was posthumously awarded the Special Congressional Gold Medal in 1987.
The Chapin Family has been working to fight hunger since Harry Chapin founded WhyHunger in 1975.
