Michael Chapman is one of the most influential and important British singer/songwriter/folk guitarists of his generation.
Chapman began his career on the Cornish folk circuit in 1967, blending traditional folk influences with rock and jazz overtones for a unique sound that remains fresh to this day. For those who thinks that an artist needs to slow down as he ages will find a very busy musician – averaging better than one album a year so far in the 21st Century and sometimes spending his free time performing with assumed fan Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth) in experimental/intrumental gigs.
Get yourself to Deep Thoughts in Jamaica Plain tonight and let yourself be carried away by deep and suffocating lyrics packed with an intense eletric guitar and discover why he is a legend. He’ll be joined by fellow local legend Glenn Jones, the guitar strumming acolyte of Fahey, Basho and the like, as well as leader of Boston experimental group Cul de Sac. Portland, Maine pair Brendan Evans (Video Nasties, Visitations) and Caleb Mulkerin perform together as B.R. Garm to round out this one hell of a good show. Don’t be a fool, ya won’t want to miss this.
