Great Waters Music Festival Tickets Selling Fast!

Great Waters Music Festival has recently announced that the first performance of the 2014 Second Stage Series at The Inn on Main, Tom Rush, has officially sold out and there are only a few tickets left for Gordon Lightfoot who will appear at the Kingswood Arts Center on July 11th.

Tom Rush 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.  Now, celebrating his 50th year on stage and in studio, Tom Rush continues to break new ground and will kick off the twentieth season of the Great Waters Music Festival on Friday, June 27, at The Inn on Main, 200 North Main Street in Wolfeboro.  The Program will begin at 7:30.

Rush is a gifted musician and performer, whose shows offer a musical celebration, a journey into the tradition and spectrum of what music has been, can be, and will become. His distinctive guitar style, wry humor and warm, expressive voice have made him both a legend and a lure to audiences around the world. His shows are filled with the rib-aching laughter of terrific story-telling, the sweet melancholy of ballads and the passion of gritty blues.

Called “the king of the soft sound” by critics, Rush’s impact on the American music scene has been profound.  James Taylor told Rolling Stone, “Tom was not only one of my early heroes, but also one of my main influences.” 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.

Endless promotional tours, interviews, television appearances, and recording sessions brought success.  Rush displayed an uncanny knack for finding wonderful songs, and writing his own – many of which have become classics re-interpreted by new generations. (It is testimony to the universality of his appeal that his songs have been folk hits, country hits, heavy metal and rap hits).  His albums include: What I Know, Trolling For Owls, The Circle Game, and many others
