Tom Rush

The onetime Harvard student was one of the leading figures in the mid-60’s folk scene and among the very first performers to record songs by James Taylor, Jackson Browne, and Joni Mitchell. Rush’s 1968 disc The Circle Game was one of folk-rock’s first real concept albums and included some of his best known songs, including “No Regrets” and the title track. He recorded a series of well received albums on Elektra and Columbia in the 60’s and 70’s. The Portsmouth, New Hampshire, native has maintained a strong local following even though he moved out of the New England area many years ago. For a number of years he held an annual concert at Symphony Hall and continues to perform and record.
