The Good Life Experience

MICHAEL CHAPMAN

MICHAEL CHAPMAN

 

Born in 1940s Yorkshire, this legendary folk singer-songwriter has played alongside John Martyn, Roy Harper and Mick Ronson and released over 40 albums for labels including Harvest and Light In The Attic. Recently, Chapman has enjoyed live collaborations with Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore, while his back catalogue is still attracting new ears – The Arctic Monkeys’ Alex Turner cites Chapman’ s 1969 debut album Rainmaker as compulsory listening. And let’s not forget a wider roustabout lifetime that has seen him out and about alongside Nick Drake, Elton John and an American bear, the latter drunk on Guinness and farting like a trooper.

At The Good Life Experience Michael will play on the Friday night and join festival co-founder Cerys Matthews in conversation on the Saturday. In the meantime, we recommend a read of this piece on Michael and his new album, 50, by The Guardian's Andrew Male.

Michael Chapman will play on the Caught by the River stage.
