New Song

April 2019

Gang,

Just a quick note. I’ve been doing a lot of writing in the past weeks and have even more new songs to try out on audiences this weekend and next (along with the old favorites, of course. (A song is never “done”, in my mind, until it’s tried out on a real, live audience — the only kind I play for.) Here’s a clip from one of my favorites, done at the kitchen table: Nothing But A Man. This only for you folks on the email list, because you’re special!!

Coming right up:

Friday, April 5th, Wrentham, MA, the OCC Coffee House
Saturday, April 6th, Plymouth, MA, the Spire Center

And next weekend:
Friday, April 12th, Brownfield, ME, Stone Mountain Arts Center (SMAC)
Saturday, April 13th, Willington, CT, the Packing House

Matt Nakoa will be along on all these shows, and he has a new CD to tell you about!

Spring is struggling to arrive — rejoice and help it along!!

All the best,


Tom Rush
