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 side-aching laughter of terrific story-telling, the sweet melancholy of ballads and the passion of gritty blues.
He’s second to none in terms of his impact down through the years. Rush’s three albums for Elektra in the 1960s were key founding documents of the entire singetr-songwriter concept, and he’s influenced everyone from James Taylor to Garth Brooks. A powerful musician - master of nuance - with an abiding love of performance, he is a rib-tickling storyteller, an expressive singer, and a guitarist capable of real melancholy - or as The Chicago Tribune put it, “probably the only man alive who should be allowed to sing Joni Mitchell songs.” He is, in short, folk royalty. It’s a pleasure to welcome him back!
“Tom Rush roams - wild and free - a vast musical territory. Her is very good.” - Washington Post
“Fluid, gorgeous, ravishing, ditsy, inventive, gritty, elegant” - Boston Herald
“Simple and strong..his gift is to get out of the way of the songs, so their essence flows through him” - Michael Hochanadel, Daily Gazette
