The Chapin Sisters, "Ferry Boat"
Siblings Abigail and Lily Chapin got their start singing on their father Tom Chapin's children's albums, perfecting the harmonies they now employ on this title track to their new EP Ferry Boat. A delicate folk song that uses the boat as a metaphor for traversing over love's often turbulent waters, it bluntly asks if a romance can "exist once more." It's sad but moving stuff, delivered by sisters who know from heart-tugging lyrics: their uncle was "Cat's in the Cradle" songwriter Harry Chapin. J.H.
