TOPSY CHAPMAN & SOLID HARMONY
November 13, 2021 @ 8:00 pm
Topsy Chapman has charmed crowds all over the world with her authentic style and clear melodious voice. To hear her is a pure delight for people of all ages.
Raised in the gospel music tradition, that gospel-tinged fervor is still evident in her voice today, as she sings with some of the top musicians in New Orleans. As one of the original cast members of the off-Broadway hit musical “One Mo’ Time”, Topsy gained national and international recognition.
After studying and playing with the respected clarinetist and educator Alvin Batiste, her daughter Yolanda Robinson has earned recognition among her peers as one of New Orleans’ finest female vocalists of jazz, blues and gospel. Whether she is fronting the legendary Original Tuxedo Jazz Band or singing with her mother’s group, as she will be doing tonight, Yolanda is known for her sultry, soulful vocal stylings.
Topsy’s other daughter Jolynda has also made her own place in the jazz scene, as well as performances with musical theater giants like Harry Shearer, Melissa Etheridge, and Stanton Moore. Using her deep roots in gospel, combined with her rhythm & blues skills, Jolynda has the ability to create a musical environment unlike anyone else’s.
TONIGHT: Expect a mosaic of jazz, blues and gospel, tied together with unique swing harmonies and backed by an all-star New Orleans band.
