Jen Chapin Trio in Bath waterfront concert


BATH — The Chocolate Church Arts Center will continue its Summer Saturdays Waterfront Concert Series with urban-folk band Jen Chapin Trio at 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 15.

Jen Chapin is a live powerhouse who has performed at the Chocolate Church Arts Center before and continues to astound audiences with her storytelling prowess. Backed by Stephan Crump on bass and Jamie Fox on guitar, their signature “urban-folk soul” captivates the audience with raw emotion and insight on the world. Jen Chapin Trio blends a mix of folk, jazz and alternative rock with lyrics touching upon family, community, politics and many other topics.

Chapin’s music has received critical acclaim over the years, with her latest album “Reckoning” released in 2013 to rave reviews. She has opened for big name acts such as Bruce Hornsby, Smokey Robinson, The Neville Brothers and has performed on stage with Bruce Springsteen. Chapin is also a strong advocate of anti-hunger groups, and is listed on Foodtank’s “Twelve Musicians Promoting Food Movement Initiatives” alongside Yoko Ono, Willie Nelson and the Indigo Girls.

Admission to the concert is free.

The concert, in cooperation with the city of Bath and Beale Street Barbeque, will be staged in Waterfront Park on Commercial Street.
