Legendary folk icon Tom Rush is joined by singer songwriter Matt Nakoa for an incredible evening filled with great stories, sweet ballads and gritty blues.
Now celebrating over five decades of touring, Tom Rush has been thrilling audiences here and abroad with hits like No Regrets, Circle Game, Remember Song, Urge for Going and Merrimack County.
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. Subsequently, his Club 47 concerts brought attention to artists such as Nanci Griffith and Shawn Colvin.
As vital and engaging as ever, Tom is still doing what audiences love him for: writing and playing ...passionately, tenderly...knitting together the musical traditions and talents of our times. He’s also celebrating a YouTube hit, TheRemember Song, for his generation that’s gone viral with over 7 million views.
Currently Tom tours as a duo show, accompanied by up and coming Singer/Songwriter Matt Nakoa, continuing to captivate his sold out audiences of loyal fans.
Matt Nakoa is an internationally touring singer/songwriter, who appears regularly with folk icon Tom Rush.
Across the board, his songcraft has garnered awards, including a win at Kerrville Folk Festival’s prestigious New FolkCompetition and as “Most Requested” at The Falcon Ridge Folk Festival. Though not easily pinned down, “In sum,” as a recent review put it, “Matt Nakoa is musically adept, one of those well-kept secrets you just can’t help but celebrate: intimate and genuine, soulful and bittersweet, a rich poetic songbook sung in praise to a complicated, emotionally present world.”
