Album Notes
We have traveled hard, traveled long
Many a night and day
Stops, starts, turning points
Along the way.

“Many is the time I have been asked at a concert, ‘Which CD is most like tonight’s show?’ and now I have an answer: At The Turning Point. It was 60 years ago, in the sun-drenched summer of 1958, that I first heard The Weavers At Carnegie Hall recording and picked up a guitar. And it was 30 years ago, 1988, that Tom Chapin & Friends first performed together. We decided to commemorate these milestones with a live, in-concert album, including one new song with a collection of some favorite tunes from a long career. I am joined by my friends Michael Mark and Jon Cobert who have traveled, sung, played and collaborated with me for lo these many years. I am so lucky and grateful for their joyful expertise. And my lovely singing daughters, Abigail and Lily ~ The Chapin Sisters ~ were there with older sister Jessica, lending their beautiful voices and spirit.”

Tom Chapin, Spring 2018

Sundance Music is pleased to announce the release of TOM CHAPIN & Friends: At The Turning Point. Long recognized as one of American Folk Music’s best live performers, Tom Chapin and his band have a tradition of ending every year with “Home for the Holidays” shows at the Hudson Valley’s historic folk club, the Turning Point. This past holiday season we captured their joy in performing together on this live recording. Though each show is different, this set is a good reflection of the songs they find themselves performing these days, with lyrics and melodies written over a span of 40+ years.

Chapin says, “These are songs of mine that continue to resonate, that I find myself singing and sharing. Every once in a while I’ll resurrect a song we wrote years ago to find it not only relevant, but still timely. A Bridge To Somewhere, Join The Jubilee, Our Mothers Built This City could all have been written last week.”

Song Of The Earth is a poetic and melodic paean to the planet. Ladies Of The Line, one of the first songs Tom ever wrote, sees new life with the vibrant voices of his daughters. Ellis Island and My Town Is A Salad Bowl are story songs that inform each other, celebrating the immigrant experience first from an adult’s point of view, and the second from a playful child’s eye view. Tom shows off his guitar chops as Jon and Michael each take center stage singing songs of their choosing: Blow Away The Blues highlights Michael’s superb tenor vocals, and Touch Someone features Jon’s lovely piano-based tune on which Tom plays his favorite guitar solo. The CD ends as he ends many shows, with Together Tomorrow, celebrating friendship and a hopeful tomorrow.

Tom Chapin & Friends consists of Tom Chapin (vocals, guitars, banjo and autoharp), Jon Cobert (vocals, piano and accordion), and Michael Mark (vocals, bass, concertina and Irish whistle). Tom’s three daughters (Abigail Chapin, Lily Chapin and Jessica Craven) were in town and lent their beautiful voices and harmonies.

In a career that spans five decades and three Grammy awards, Hudson Valley Troubadour Tom Chapin has covered an incredible amount of creative ground. In addition to his work as a recording artist and concert performer, Chapin has acted on Broadway, as well as working extensively in television, radio, and film.

As a music-maker, the multi-talented singer/songwriter/guitarist has maintained two long and productive parallel careers, both as a highly respected contemporary folk artist and as a pioneer in the field of children's music. Chapin has established a reputation for insightful songcraft, masterful fingerpicking, and charismatic live performance.

In addition to his varied musical and media endeavors, Chapin is also a powerful advocate on behalf of a variety of charitable causes. He is a board member of WhyHunger, and remains active in a variety of environmental causes, as well as efforts on behalf of music and the arts in our public schools.
