The iconic Tom Rush returns to AMSDConcerts, 4650 Mansfield, Avenue, at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, May 16. Tickets are $35 for rows 8 and back and $62 for the first 8 rows and dinner package at De Mille’s. (The food is outstanding!) 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. No less than James Taylor, Emmylou Harris, Tom Petty and Garth Brooks have cited Rush 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 emerging artists such as Nanci Griffith and Shawn Colvin.

On February 24, 2009, Appleseed Recordings released Tom Rush’s first full-length studio album in over thirty years, “What I Know.” This album is the newest chapter in his legendary career and features original material and Rush’s interpretations of songs such as “Drift Away.” Included on Tom’s new album is a song by San Diego’s very own Jack Tempchin.

Today, after 50 years, he’s still doing what audiences love him for: writing and playing — passionately, tenderly — knitting together the musical traditions and talents of our times.

This will be Rush’s fourth AMSD appearance, and his first three shows were excellent. Don’t miss him. For tickets, see
