St. Charles Free Summer Sunday Concerts-The Chapmans
The St. Charles Summer Sunday Concert Series kicks off with The Chapmans (bluegrass).
The Chapmans are truly a family bluegrass band. Their musical journey began in the early 1990s in Colorado when John Chapman won a statewide junior-division fiddle championship in his early teens. Inspired by his son’s interest in music, John’s father, Bill, took up the banjo, and the two started a bluegrass band with some family friends. Eventually John switched to guitar and sang lead vocals. When younger brothers Jeremy and Jason took up mandolin and bass respectively, a hobby turned into a full time family passion. In 1998 the band jumped into the national spotlight when they won the International Bluegrass Band Championships and in 1999 they were nominated for album of the year by the Society for Bluegrass Music in America. The Chapman’s released Follow Me in 2001 which led to winning the emerging artist award from the International Bluegrass Music Association in 2002. In 2005, the band released the album Simple Man. Now based in Springfield, Missouri, The Chapmans have been touring for more than two decades.
