Tom Rush is a gifted musician and performer, whose shows offer a musical celebration...a

journey into the tradition and spectrum of what music has been, can be, and will become.

His distinctive guitar style, wry humor and warm, expressive voice have made him both a

legend and a lure to audiences around the world. His shows are filled with the rib-aching

laughter of terrific story-telling, the sweet melancholy of ballads and the passion of gritty


Rush's impact on the American music scene has been profound. He helped shape the folk

revival in the '60s and the renaissance of the '80s and '90s, his music having left its stamp

on generations of artists. James Taylor told Rolling Stone, "Tom was not only one of my

early heroes, but also one of my main influences." Country music star Garth Brooks has

credited Rush with being one of his top five musical influences. Rush has long championed

emerging artists. His early recordings introduced the world to the work of Joni Mitchell,

Jackson Browne and James Taylor, and in more recent years his Club 47 concerts have

brought artists such as Nanci Griffith and Shawn Colvin to wider audiences when they were

just beginning to build their own reputations.
