From Chip Richter's website:
Singer-Songwriter Chip Richter serves up stories, songs, and smiles "Family Style". Chip's concerts feature something on the menu for everyone. It's a recipe for "more fun than a kid should be allowed to have" as Chip delivers healthy portions of love and laughter for all ages to enjoy! Touring nationally as a solo artist or with his band "The Munks," Chip's delightful performances are filled with his gentle spirit, pleasant and winsome style, and an unmistakable connection with children and family audiences.
Chip Richter's original songs range from fun, rollicking, bash-around tunes to songs that are very thoughtful and inspiring, but not at all preachy. Chip's performances have found a home in libraries, churches, schools and theaters all over the country. He uses acoustic instruments, songs, humor, and loads of audience participation to encourage children to discover their gifts and talents and to use those gifts to help others. Chip Richter's music has been compared to James Taylor and Phil Keaggy and indeed offers a tranquil, folk appeal that is soothing to the soul and finds a welcoming audience among teachers, librarians and parents as much as children.
