8:00 p.m. Singer-Songwriter Series: The Music of Tom Rush NEW!
Tom Rush is credited with ushering in the singer-songwriter era. Not only is he a songwriter himself, but he helped put several others on the map by singing their songs, most notably Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne and James Taylor. Tom Rush has been at it for over sixty years. Today he is 82 and still active. I have fond memories of spending his 79th birthday with him at a concert in a church in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, his hometown. Tom Rush is a folk, blues, and New England legend. My favorite song by Tom? Kids These Days.
It’s Saturday and that’s always a good day to spend in The Mermaid Lounge. We kick it off early today at 9:00 a.m., so remember to just push the button below as we kick off your morning with songs about morning.
