BENNINGTON- Enjoy an evening with Tom Rush on Saturday, September 29, at 8 pm, at the Bennington Center for the Arts.

Rush has a distinctive guitar style, wry humor, and warm, expressive voice. He is a legend and a lure to audiences around the world. His shows are filled with the rib-aching laughter of terrific storytelling, the sweet melancholy of ballads, and the passion of gritty blues.

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. Country music star Garth Brooks has credited Rush with being one of his top five musical influences.

Rush has long championed emerging artists. His early recordings introduced the world to the work of Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne, and James Taylor, and in more recent years his Club 47 concerts have brought artists such as Nanci Griffith and Shawn Colvin to wider audiences when they were just beginning to build their own reputations. Club 47 events have filled the nation’s finest halls to rave reviews, and have been broadcast as national specials on PBS and NPR.

Tickets are $35. For information or to purchase tickets call (802) 442-7158.
