|10—10||An Evening with Tom Rush
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. His early recordings introduced the world to the work of Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne and James Taylor. Tom is now celebrating his 52nd 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. OCMH Members, $35, Non-members, $40, At the Door, $45. A special thanks to our lead sponsor, Oneida Financial Corp., and to International Wire and the Gifford Foundation for making this concert possible.
