You might think that Jen Chapin simply had no choice but to become a musician.
While her dad, the late Harry Chapin, may today be the best known of the lot, he was just one of many. And her grandfather, Jim Chapin, was a big-band drummer. He sat down with me for a candid discussion of his comeback and his music for lohud.
Read the full interview here. Visit The Turning Point wesbsite or call for more information. Leave a comment. For one reason or another, I never found myself in Saratoga Springs. And then there was the Towne Crier in Pawling, N. That gave me a backup option just a bit farther afield than The Turning Point. I should have known I was missing out.
A slew of local favorites, including Tom Chapina longtime Piermont resident, will rock out starting at p. The Old No. And other guests and favorites are sure to show up and in.
The Turning Point is at Piermont Ave. Call or for more information. Abigail Rose Chapin and Lily Chapin have been playing as the Chapin Sisters sincewhen they followed family tradition and started making music as a trio with half-sister Jessica Craven. That family tradition runs deep.
Their dad is popular folksinger Tom Chapin. Their cousin, Jen Chapinis also a contemporary folksinger.
Abby and Lily grew up in Rockland County, N. But they got their careers rolling in Los Angeles seven years ago. Proud dad Tom Chapin listens from the bar, leaning against the pillar, right. And although they have other gigs coming up in the area — one of them just steps from the family home, at The Turning Point in Piermont at 8 p. July 19 — their proud parents showed up to lend support.
The sisters have really perfected the vocal harmonies so closely identified with the Everly Brothers and the Louvin Brothers, tackling classic folk themes and timeless relationship-troubles issues in their songs.
The duo, who got together in on the streets of Harlem share a gritty and spirited vision of the blues. They made their name busking on the streets, with Mister Satan on guitar and kickboard percussion and Adam Gussow on blues harmonica. But after many tours and three studio albums, they virtually disappeared. Adam, a native of Rockland County, N. But the fate that brought them together in Harlem and then tore them cruelly apart has brought them back together. This could well be our last chance to see the duo here in the Metro area, as the state-run home where Satan lives is tightening its rules.
He is only allowed to leave for a few days at a time, making it all but impossible for them to arrange lengthy road trips. Piermont, N. The full interview appears after the jump. Posted in BluesMusicNews. Adam Gussow and Sterling "Mr.
Satan" Magee. As promised, Satan and Adam have worked out their scheduling issues and will be on tour in August. We have rescheduled three of the gigs from our postponed June tour, and added two new dates. Although Sterling will still be able to play occasional out-of-town dates from this point on, the word from his sister down in Florida is that all future touring will need to keep him away from home no more than three nights. This means that our dates in Philly, Portsmouth NH, and Piermont NY are the last time you will be able to see Satan and Adam in those areas, except for possible fly-in dates.
Satan, guitar-man of Harlem.
For info, please contact Jim McBride: bottle. This party is open to the public, but only if you purchase an advance ticket from Jim. Space is limited.

The band broke up inbut Jon has continued to perform, as a solo artist and with bands, ever since. All while, Jon says, his approach to making music remains pretty steadfast. Over time, you become open and receptive to other things.
But I was kind of rooted in roots, blues and rock-and-roll. But then in the early Nineties, my manager brought me to Nashville and got me started collaborating. I really enjoyed that. It opened up a whole new perspective.
Jon is still actively recording a new album is due later this year and playing shows. You start to play a song out and it shifts and changes. The Jon Pousette-Dart Band plays at 9 p.
