#34 Tom Rush
GOLDEN RUSH: Veteran folkie Tom Rush remains relevant Aug. 29.
Tuesday August 29, 2023 07:30 PM EDT
Cost: $40+
CRITIC’S PICK: At 82, folk singing veteran Rush is a legend. He’s been performing since the early 60s and, while some of his originals have broken through - “The Wind on the Water,” “No Regrets” - he’s best known for being one of the first singers to bring attention to the songs of Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, and James Taylor by covering their earliest songs. He’ll probably include some of those in his set, though Rush released a fine album of mostly self-penned tracks in 2018 that shows he hasn’t lost a step either vocally or as a tunesmith who no longer needs to record the material of others. He also had a fluke hit with the witty “Remember,” which went viral, and displays a crafty, self-deprecating sense of humor, one he has only sharpened with age. - Hal Horowitz
