Masters of harmony and haunting folk melody, The Chapin Sisters play Base Camp in Middlesbrough on Wednesday 27th July.

Originally from Brooklyn, New York, sisters Abigail and Lily Chapin hail from a profound musical heritage, including their legendary Grammy award winning uncle Harry and father Tom.

Expect an evening of musical indulgence, as their unique sound blurs the lines between traditional Appalachian music, classic country rock and pop, creating an unparalleled hybridisation of sounds. With rich vocal harmonies and unforgettable folk-influenced melodies, The Chapin Sisters will draw from their original repertoire whilst featuring some familiar pop/folk classics, all given their unique spin. With unprecedented storytelling abilities, their lyrics will get you thinking, whilst maintaining elements of mystery and subtlety. Their sound is often rooted in dark lyrical content, although their innate musicality means their style is both addictive and sublime.

Support comes from The Ocelots, made up of twins Ashley and Brandon Watson, whose raw and forceful acoustic folk comes replete with delicious harmonies and stunning storytelling.
