Ancient & Modern concert recorded in lockdown

Sun Nov 29 @ 7.00 pm 8.30 pm

Veteran troubadour Michael Chapman, has announced a special concert, recorded during lockdown in York’s stunning Merchant Adventurers’ Hall, to be broadcast online next Sunday 29th November.

The concert has been recorded in collaboration with local venue ​The Crescent​, and promoters ​Please Please You​ and ​Ouroboros.​

The recording, titled ​Ancient & Modern, ​represents a look back over his long and illustrious career, featuring classics as well as newer compositions, in addition to a support slot and interview by close friend and mentee, Katie Spencer.

‘I wanted to call it ​Ancient & Modern i​n reference to the hymn books of days gone by’, he says, ‘and because it reflects the songs I selected to play for this show’.

The title also reflects Michael’s approach and sound. Whilst firmly rooted in traditional folk, blues and Americana, his constant pushing of the envelope has inspired a whole new generation of artists, such as renowned instrumentalist turned singer Steve Gunn, who produced his last two albums for Paradise of Bachelors; ​50 a​ nd ​True North​, which featured legends such as BJ Cole and Bridget St John.
