Celebrating 55 years on stage! A performer with an abiding love of being in front of an audience, Rush is a rib-tickling storyteller, an expressive singer, and a guitarist capable of real melancholy. He’s a durable Ark favorite, and, says the Chicago Tribune, he’s “probably the only man alive who should be allowed to sing Joni Mitchell songs.” Tom Rush is, in short, folk royalty.
