Legendary folk musician Tom Rush to headline benefit concert at Suicide Six

Saturday, July 8, 2:30 p.m.—WOODSTOCK—Folk singer Tom Rush will headline an outdoor concert at the Woodstock Inn & Resort’s Suicide Six Ski Area on Saturday, July 8. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Woodstock Ski Runners, the oldest ski club in the Northeast, as well as the Friday Learn to Ski program.

Noted for his distinctive guitar style, wry humor and warm, expressive voice, Tom Rush has influenced generations of singers and songwriters, from James Taylor to Garth Brooks. Touring for over 50 years, Rush shaped the folk revival in the 1960s and the renaissance of the 80s and 90s. Today, he’s still thrilling audiences with melancholy ballads and passionate, gritty blues.

Gates open at 2:30 p.m. and musical performances kick off at 3 p.m. with singer-songwriter Dylan Keith and musician Jay Nash to follow at 4:30 p.m. Headliner Tom Rush will take center stage at 6 p.m. ArtisTree Community Arts Center will offer a variety of children’s activities.
