Special Note: EC-CHAP is privileged and honored to host an intimate performance with folk legend Tom Rush at The Packing House! Tom will be joined by singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Matt Nakoa. Tom Rush has always been favorite musician of ours, and a major force in the evolution of folk era of the 1960’s.

Two shows will be offered on April 13th - An afternoon concert beginning at 3:30pm and an evening performance at 7:30pm. Regional folk / americana band, “Horizon Blue”, will open for both shows.

This event represents an annual Benefit Concert to support the The Eastern Connecticut Center for History, Art, and Performance (EC-CHAP), a 501.c.3 nonprofit cultural institution serving local and regional communities in Eastern Connecticut and beyond.


TOM RUSH is a gifted musician and performer, whose shows offer a musical celebration…a journey into the tradition and spectrum of what music has been, can be, and will become. His distinctive guitar style, wry humor and warm, expressive voice have made him both a legend and a lure to audiences around the world. His shows are filled with the rib-aching laughter of terrific story-telling, the sweet melancholy of ballads and the passion of gritty blues.

Rush’s impact on the American music scene has been profound. 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. James Taylor told Rolling Stone, “Tom was not only one of my early heroes, but also one of my main influences.” Country music star Garth Brooks has credited Rush with being one of his top five musical influences. Rush has long championed emerging artists. His early recordings introduced the world to the work of Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne and James Taylor, and in more recent years his Club 47® concerts have brought artists such as Nanci Griffith and Shawn Colvin to wider audiences when they were just beginning to build their own reputations.

Tom will be joined by singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist MATT NAKOA.
