Easton Shovel Town Cultural District Upcoming Events
Tom Rush comes to Easton…In Conjunction with Oakes Ames Memorial Hall, The Easton Shovel Town Cultural District will present Folk Music Legend, Tom Rush, at Oakes Ames Memorial Hall on January 31, 2013, 7:00 p.m.
“Tom Rush first sang at Symphony Hall in 1958. He was a junior at Groton School then, and it was part of a glee-club gathering under the auspices of the New England Preparatory School Choru s “What we sang is lost in the mists of time,” he says.
Even as young adult, the experience was worth remembering, but Rush had no idea that Symphony Hall would eventually help cement his legacy as one of New England’s most revered and influential folk-blues
On Friday, December 28, 2012, Rush resurrected that fabled run of shows with a return to Symphony Hall, capping a year that celebrated his 50th anniversary as a performer. This year’s edition, which was sold out and was streamed live for free on his website (www.tomrush.com), featured several familiar faces: Nanci Griffith, Buskin & Batteau, Jonathan Edwards, guitarist Trevor Veitch, and a mystery guest. But it will also include a younger artist, Carolina Chocolate Drops’ Dom Flemons, who proves Rush’s appeal has trickled down to newer generations”…Boston Globe
