Music on the River - Tom Rush
|Date:||July 21, 2014|
|Time:||6:30 PM - 8:30 PM|
Location: Green of the Goodspeed Opera House
Tom Rush’s reputation as one of the finest interpreters of folk music who helped jump-start the awakening of both traditional folk music and the singer songwriter boom from the golden era of the 60’s and 70’s is undisputed. His recordings of songs by Joni Mitchell, James Taylor and Jackson Brown (to name a few) were instrumental in launching their careers, and he continues to help subsequent generations get their footing as well. His honey drenched baritone and tasteful guitar accompaniment, has a purity that has been charming audiences for 50 years. A master storyteller and humorist, Tom’s yarns are spun with regional accents and an endearing nod to Americana. Join us for a magical evening of sweet melancholy ballads, gritty blues, and laughter.
