Legendary artist Graham Nash, twice inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, brings a songbook created over six decades of his astonishing career to the UK for eight shows in July (see below).
The evening promises performances of his many well-known songs along with anecdotes and tales from throughout his storied career. He will be joined on stage by guitarist and vocalist Shane Fontayne, longtime collaborator and producer of his most recent album, This Path Tonight (2016) and former CSN keyboardist and vocalist Todd Caldwell. Together, the trio will perform songs from his days in the Hollies, his years with Crosby, Stills & Nash (& Young) and from his solo recordings.
Towering above virtually everything that Graham Nash has accomplished in his first seventy-six years on this planet stands the litany of songs that he has written and introduced to the soundtrack of the past half-century. His remarkable body of work, beginning with his contributions to the Hollies opus, including “Stop Stop Stop” and “Carrie Anne,” his signature CSN (Y) offerings like “Teach Your Children,” “Our House,” and “Marrakesh Express” and his solo standouts “Chicago/We Can Change the World” and “Military Madness” are lightning rods embedded in our DNA.
No Depression magazine proclaimed of a recent tour date, “Nash walked the audience through his catalog, a rich tapestry of music spanning more than five decades. Touring in support of his latest release, This Path Tonight, the strength of the material and the resilience in Nash’s voice made for a wonderful evening. And, as the crowd soon discovered, the new songs were every bit as vital as the classic anthems they came to hear.”
In addition to his R&R HOF honours, Graham Nash is a two-time Songwriter Hall of Fame Inductee, Grammy Award winner, a New York Times best-selling author, and an OBE.
