The Folk Show Road Show: Tom Rush (and the Early Mays)

Tom Rush, Hour 2, at the State Theatre. (with a holiday interlude from the Early Mays)

Tom Rush took the stage at the State Theatre in State College on May 15, 2015, and we're happy to have this present to share with you this holiday season.   It's no stretch to call the 76 year old Rush a folk legend, as he maintains a busy performance schedule that continues to bring audiences the warmth and energy for which he is well known.  And of course, his incredible songs !

We paired a concert we recorded almost 3 years ago, with a portion recorded just 11 days ago: The Early Mays, at the Center for Well-Being in Lemont.  We chose the holiday songs from their set,  and will bring you more of their performance in an upcoming broadcast. 

Mel DeYoung hosts Morning Edition on WPSU and is in the broadcast booth before 5am each weekday. That means that if he's being sensible he goes to sleep way earlier than normal people do. The differences don't end there, but you'll have to chat with Mel sometime to understand the full depth of his abnormality.
