SARATOGA SPRINGS — Legendary singer/songwriter/activist Tom Chapin brings his feel-good music back to Caffe Lena on Sunday, July 23. The 7 p.m. concert will be presented live on stage and will also be streamed to the online community.

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.

In a career that spans five decades, 27 albums and three Grammy awards, Tom Chapin has covered an incredible amount of creative ground. In addition to his work as a recording artist, concert performer, storyteller and activist, he’s performed on Broadway and worked extensively in television, radio and film. 

Tom and The Chapin Family have been touring this year with “Harry Chapin at 80: A Retrospective.” This concert of Harry Chapin classics has been recorded on video for release later in 2023.

In addition to his musical and media endeavors, Chapin has long been an advocate for environmental causes, issues of hunger and social justice, and a supporter of music and the arts in public schools. And he is the 2023 recipient of the prestigious Robert H. Chambers Award for Excellence in the Traditional Arts: which recognizes the innate power and potential of the traditional arts to help foster understanding among people of different cultures.

Caffe Lena is located at 47 Phila Street in Saratoga Springs. Tickets are available online at www.caffelena.org.
