Tom Rush came up in the Boston/Cambridge folk scene of the early '60s, playing folk-blues on a series of albums for Prestige Records, then moved to Elektra, and by the late '60s was interpreting the work of such upcoming writers as Joni Mitchell and James Taylor. By the early '70s, he was mixing his own songs on albums for Columbia. More recently, Rush became something of a folk packager, putting together road shows including newer folk performers. After 35 years away from the recording studio, Rush returned with the Appleseed Records release What I Know in 2009, featuring guest appearances from Emmylou Harris, Nanci Griffith, and Bonnie Bramlett. To highlight a half century as a performing artist, Rush released Celebrates 50 Years of Music, a live CD and DVD set drawn from a show held at Boston Symphony Hall in December 2012. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi
