Tom Rush has been performing as a folk singer since the mid 1960s. He is well known both for his original music and for covering classics by contemporaries such as Joni Mitchell. Nancy Young from Gatehouse News Service said of Rush, “His voice is still molasses, smoke and licorice; his fingers still coax magic and thunder from every guitar string, and he’s as engaging a storyteller as he ever was.” Now in his sixth decade of delighting audiences with his gift for storytelling through song, Rush is still going strong. For this Friday's show, he’ll be supported by Matt Nakoa who he encountered in the studio and "sings like an angel, is a monster keyboard player and writes great songs. He’s got classic, blues, rock ‘n’ roll chops and anything you can mention he can play almost better than anyone you’ve ever heard. And he’s cute. So the ladies tell me. Why I get this guy onstage with me, I don’t know."
