Tom Rush and the Naked Lady
Tom has selected Mackenzie & Marr to create two guitars for him. One is an upgraded replica of his beloved Naked Lady which was lost in a fire 20 years ago; the other, without the Naked Lady inlay, is called the Signature Dreadnought.

Nimbit -The Power of Direct to Fan

"If there is such a thing as a folk star, this guy merits the title. Whether performing a heartfelt ballad, singing a down-to-earth blues tune, or weaving an onstage story with strands of humor and wisdom, Rush has been winning audiences over since the 1960s."

"Never miss a chance to see Tom Rush live he's got that rare one-of-a-kind quality that makes you realize you've seen somebody who really matters."
Eric Thom,
EXCLAIM Magazine

DVD - Tom Rush: No Regrets

Welcome, and thanks for stopping by. Have a look around. I can tell you that there’s some fun stuff in the Photo Album — conveniently arranged by decade, though the ‘80s are missing for some reason. I think I might have been having a bad hair decade.

In the Music Store the new video documentary, No Regrets, is the top seller by far, wherein you can learn something, but not everything, about my sordid past. For those of you interested in the Club 47 history and the ‘60s folk scene in Cambridge, MA, "For The Love Of The Music" is a great mini-history in three incarnations: CD, DVD and BluRay DVD. Check it out!

Just so’s you know: we recorded the Symphony Hall show at the end of December with Red Molly, Monica Rizzio and Grace Kelly. The music that night was exceptional (for my part I debuted five new songs) and a CD is in the works, though I won’t promise a delivery date at this point.

Finally I'm delighted that Matt Nakoa, will be joining me for many of my upcoming shows. Matt is a 2014 Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Winner, and a multi-talented performer.

Again, thanks for being here. Have fun!
