Born in Portsmouth, NH, this local yet now internationally known folk singer legend will be back once again to Jonathan’s Ogunquit.
Tom 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, Emmylou Harris, Tom Petty and Garth Brooks have cited Tom as major influences.
Tom is now celebrating his 53rd year on stage and in the studio, still doing what audiences love him for: writing and playing …passionately, tenderly…knitting together the musical traditions and talents of our times.
