Folk-blues music great Tom Rush is an “outstanding” (The New York Times) singer-songwriter and gifted musician whose music has already left its stamp on generations of artists and listeners. His distinctive guitar style, wry humor and warm, expressive voice have made him both a legend and a lure to audiences around the world. A Tom Rush show means the rib-aching laughter of terrific storytelling, the sweet melancholy of ballads and the passion of gritty blues. His impact on the American music scene has been profound. He helped shape the ‘60s folk revival and the renaissance of the ‘80s & ‘90s. As a Harvard student playing in Cambridge in the early ‘60s, he introduced the world to the music of Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne - and more of our greatest folk musicians. James Taylor tells Rolling Stone, "Tom was not only one of my early heroes, but also one of my main influences."
