Livingston Taylor, Tom Chapin and The Jammin' Divas found themselves together in New York City in early 2014 when someone fortuitously mentioned that the world is in need of a new folk group. One thing led to another, and the result was "L.T.D." The show features unprecedented harmonies, memorable audience interactions and collaborations never before seen. Each artist will perform individually as well as with one another throughout the show.
Tom Chapin and Livingston Taylor are two of the most revered and loved singer-songwriters of our generation. The Jammin' Divas are an exciting new contemporary folk music group. Each of them brings their own unique sound and repertoire to the stage and then blends their voices and unique talent together, presenting a truly memorable evening of song, stunning harmonies and superior musicianship.
In a career that spans five decades, 24 albums and three Grammy awards, the multi-talented singer-songwriter-guitarist Tom Chapin has traveled two long and productive parallel musical paths, both as a treasured contemporary folk artist and as a pioneer in the field of children's music. In concert, he serves up a mix of ballads, comedic and political songs, family music, sing-alongs, old-time folk classics and some he borrows from his late brother Harry. As a poet, satirist, humanitarian, family man, environmentalist, Tom's songs tell the stories of our times.
