Bios - New York State Blues Festival - Syracuse, NY The creator of a singular sound, which he dubbed "folk-funk," multi-instrumentalist Bobby Rush was among the most colorful characters on the contemporary chitlin circuit, honing a unique style that brought together a cracked lyrical bent with elements of blues, soul, and funk.

He appeared on a wide variety of labels as the decade progressed, culminating in the 1979 LP Rush Hour, produced by Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff for their Philadelphia International imprint.
