Tom Rush celebrates 50 years with a return to Symphony Hall

Tom Rush first sang at Symphony Hall in 1958. He was a junior at Groton School then, and it was part of a glee-club gathering under the auspices of the New England Preparatory School Chorus. “What we sang is lost in the mists of time,” he says.

Even as young adult, the experience was worth remembering, but Rush had no idea that Symphony Hall would eventually help cement his legacy as one of New England’s most revered and influential folk-blues musicians.
