Kiss, ASCAP'S 1999 Song Of The Year.
Hearts Of Glass,
Beth’s newest album, riveting and sparse, is a powerful collection of
songs that reach into the place within us where vulnerability meets
strength which is often where Beth’s songs will take you, right into the
center of the full beautiful dance of contradictions that inhabit love
August 11 will mark Chapman’s sixth appearance on Mountain Stage since 1994.
