UPDATE 8-25-06: JEN CHAPIN APPEARANCE CANCELED, OWING TO ILLNESS. BRIAN VANDER OF THE VERVE WILL APPEAR IN HER STEAD. Understandably, a streak of old-school discipline informs the soulful, elegant tunes of singer-songwriter Jen Chapin, daughter of the legendary Harry Chapin. Her third studio album, Ready, is an elaborate urban take on folk music -- a smooth, organic affair filled with ukulele solos, flashes of drum & bass, pump organ, and double-drummer interplay. Her lullaby delivery makes the show Scene's date-night pick of the week.
