Michael Chapman Death – Obituary News : Beloved English Musician, Guitarist dies at 80.

We are sad to report that English folk singer-songwriter Michael Chapman has died at the age of 80. His death was announced on his Facebook fan page and confirmed by several media sources and many on social media on September 10. 2021.

Michael Chapman 24/01/1941 – 10/09/2021 RIP
“Days pass so slowly
In the valley of my time
The trees sway so gently
There is something on my mind
Like a fly that buzzes ’round
There’s nothing I can do
I guess it’s just
The memory of you”
MC In The Valley 1970
It is with regret and indescribable sadness that we must tell all of his friends that
Michael Chapman died earlier today at home.
Andru Chapman, Michael’s wife and inspiration will of course appreciate her privacy during this period of loss.
Please raise a glass or two to a gentleman, a musician, a husband, a force of nature, a legend and the most fully qualified survivor.
Michael Chapman was born in Leeds, England, in 1941. Although he started off teaching art and photography, his guitar playing quickly developed from a passion into a profession. Without access to educational materials about how to play the guitar, Chapman often listened to albums by other artists to teach himself the instrument. “You have to learn the language before you can start to say what you want to say,” he told The Bluegrass Situation in 2017. Pitchfork reported

Danny I was a projectionist at the London Pavilion at this time. I worked on the lights for the 4 nights ELP played there. Your right Michael Chapman did the support playing I think his album “ Wrecked Again”
He was a nice fella.

So sorry to hear of the death today of Michael Chapman
@qualifiedsur a frequent visitor to Nottingham. A truly great guitarist, influential on so many much younger artists. Also a lovely guy & terrific company. He’ll be sorely missed. Condolences to Andru.

Very sad to hear of the passing of Michael Chapman. The very first day I got Spotify I took a random punt on this album from a review I’d read that morning. Ended up listening to about 25 of his albums that week. A great introduction to streaming. RIP.
