Get Folkadelic with Michael Chapman

Posted by on Thu, Oct 11, 2012 at 10:37 AM

(Easy Street Records, Queen Anne) Under-recognized British troubadour alert! The 70-year-old Michael Chapman, whose fantastic Rainmaker and Fully Qualified Survivor LPs were recently reissued by Seattle/LA label Light in the Attic, brings his distinctively weathered vocals, poignant lyrics, and corkscrewing folkadelic guitar artistry to Easy Street Records. Intimate! If you dig John Martyn, Bert Jansch, Roy Harper, or Richard Thompson, you'll flip for Chapman, whose skills rival those exalted singer/songwriter/guitarists'. Chapman—who was a favorite of the late BBC radio disc jockey John Peel—is also part of the stellar bill happening October 12 at Showbox at the Market to celebrate Light in the Attic's 10th anniversary.
