- "Crowd pleasing ... an outstanding performance." — THE NEW YORK TIMES
- "Superb...triumphant." — THE SAN FRANCISCO EXAMINER
- "It was Rush’s humor — his timing was Seinfeldesque — as much as his warm voice and deft
guitar-playing that carried the show." — CHICAGO TRIBUNE
- "Most impressively, Rush still has new tricks up his sleeve. Chalk up another Symphony Hall
triumph for Rush." — THE BOSTON GLOBE
- "He brought a warmth and closeness to the theatre that few performers are able to achieve."
Celebrating 50 years of touring in 2013, Tom has been thrilling audiences here and abroad with
hits like No Regrets, Circle Game, Remember Song, Urge for Going and Merrimack County.
He 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.
As part of his 50th year celebration in December of 2012, Tom presented a gala show at
Symphony Hall in Boston featuring special guests including Jonathan Edwards, Buskin &
Batteau, Trevor Veitch and special guest David Bromberg. The performance was streamed live
on the web, recorded for a DVD and was broadcast as a PBS special in 2014.

you’ve seen somebody who really matters.” ~ Exclaim Magazine, Toronto Canada

- " Scotland 's Tannahill Weavers play acoustic instruments, but the atmosphere at
their shows is electric. The quintet is as tight and as versatile as any band in the Celtic
music revival. They can summon rock 'n' roll intensity or haunting introspection."
The Boston Globe, Boston MA

The Tannahills have turned their acoustic excitement loose on audiences with an electrifying effect. They have that unique combination of
traditional melodies, driving rhythmic accompaniment, and rich vocals that make their performances unforgettable. As the Winnipeg Free
Press noted, "The Tannahill Weavers - properly harnessed - could probably power an entire city for a year on the strength of last night's
concert alone. The music may be old-time Celtic, but the drive and enthusiasm are akin to straight ahead rock and roll."
Born of a session in Paisley, Scotland and named for the town's historic weaving industry and local poet laureate Robert Tannahill, the group
has made an international name for its special brand of Scottish music, blending the beauty of traditional melodies with the power of modern
rhythms. Over the years the Tannies have been trailblazers for Scottish music, and their tight harmonies and powerful, inventive
arrangements have won them fans from beyond the folk and Celtic music scenes. Inducted into the Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame
in 2011, they are firmly established as one of the premier groups on the concert stage. From reflective ballads to footstomping reels and jigs,
the variety and range of the material they perform is matched only by their enthusiasm and lively Celtic spirits.
