Tom Rush

Michael Wilson

In this week's "Music Notes," you'll hear about concerts by John Hiatt, Tom Rush, the Patsy Meyer Trio, and many more local musicians.  You'll also hear about the Shrimp & Jazz Festival at Washington Platform, the Winter Blues Fest at Miami Valley Gaming, a new Jimi Hendrix box set, a Cirque du Soleil movie, and tickets going on sale for a concert by Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn next year.

Many of us who experienced the 60's music scene are familiar with the songs of singer/songwriter & folksinger Tom Rush.  We're delighted that he's still writing and recording as evidenced in his new cd, "Voices."  

He spoke with Elaine Diehl by phone from his home in Maine, on Wednesday, November 7th, about his tour stop at the 20th Century Theater on Thursday, November 15th.  On tour with him is the exciting young musician Matt Nakoa.

During their conversation, Rush talks about his new cd, PledgeMusic, Matt Nakoa, his guitar collection, and the reasons he no longer tours with a band.
