An Evening with Tom Rush


Saturday, March 2, 2013
TWO SHOWS!! 3pm and 8pm

Tom Rush has been around a long time but practice makes perfect and he just keeps getting better and better -- drawing nearer to the magic number of "10" with each passing year. Whether he is poking fun at his own 'longevity' in the contemporary "The Remember Song" which went viral when it first appeared on YouTube in 1997, or singing one of the tunes from the 1960s and 70s that are now classic Rush, it's all good.

Listening to an original recording of one of Tom's songs like "Child's Song" (written by Murray McLauchlan) the clarity of Rush's youthful voice is expected and the emotion of the lyrics easily comes through, but then listen to that same song performed at a recent concert. It's as if the accumulating years have added facets to the interpretation of the song that come through to the listener as a richer, more complex experience. Whatever it is you don't want to miss this music legend.

Teller of tales and singer of songs, Tom Rush has the ability to make each audience member feel as though he has just dropped by your house and pulled out his guitar while sitting at your kitchen table. Warm, droll, funny, and oh-so-talented, this show might just be one of the highlights of your year!

In February 2009, Appleseed Recordings released Tom Rush's first full-length studio album in over thirty years, 'What I Know.' This album is the newest chapter in his legendary career and features original material and Rush's interpretations of songs such as "Drift Away."

Never miss a chance to see Tom Rush live he's got that rare one-of-a-kind quality that makes you realize you've seen somebody who really matters.

Eric Thom, EXCLAIM Magazine (CA)

He is, if anything, better than he was in the Seventies and Eighties. He relates to his audience as if he were playing for friends.

— Key West– The Newspaper

Sellouts at ...Carnegie Hall, ...Kennedy Center and Boston’s Symphony Hall are clear measures of a performer’s credentials. But having them come
30 years into a music career is rare. The recent string of packed houses at those venues for
Tom Rush concerts tell a story of endurance and lasting appeal.
