Friends of the Chaps will know, of course, of the sad and untimely death of Marcus Turner in early 2016, bringing with it the end of an era - not just for the Chaps but for folk audiences the world over, for Marcus was a songwriter and solo performer without peer.
As we mourned his passing Hyram, John and myself began to think of continuing to play together and to keep some of Marcus' legacy alive where we could. The Chaps has always been a quartet so we have recruited my long-time Catgut and Steel duo partner, Anna Bowen (also pictured), to fill the wee man's big shoes.
Ladies and Gentlemen: The Chaps! We look forward to playing for you.
