Tom RushTom Rush is celebrating. As he says on his website, he’s celebrating his 50th year “of doing whatever it is that I do.” What Tom does is make music. What he does is entertain. He tells terrific stories and sings wonderful songs, and in the process he delivers not only a vivid self-portrait but a portrait of American folk music through the years.

He started in Boston half a century ago and quickly established himself on the folk scene. Rolling Stone magazine has credited his 1965 album Circle Game with ushering in the singer-songwriter era. He introduced countless listeners to the music of Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, and James Taylor, and later in his career he brought attention to emerging artists like Nanci Griffith and Shawn Colvin, while recording more than 20 albums and eventually becoming a YouTube sensation with more than five million hits on his “Remember Song.”

Come to the Freight and help Tom celebrate five fabulous decades as a folk troubadour. His expressive voice and distinctive guitar style, his funny stories and classic songs, from sweet ballads to gritty blues, will give you a great idea of where folk music has come from and where it’s headed.
