An Intimate Evening of Songs and Stories with Graham Nash

08:00 pm to 10:30 pm
Buskirk-Chumley Theater
https://bctboxoffice.org/event/intimate-evening-songs-stories-graham-nash/

Grammy-winning Graham Nash is a two-time Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, as part of Crosby, Stills & Nash; and the Hollies, and was inducted twice into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, both as a solo artist and with Crosby, Stills, and Nash.

Graham Nash’s legacy will likely be the litany of songs that he added to the soundtrack of the past half-century. His remarkable body of work, beginning with his contributions to the Hollies’ opus in the 1960s, including “Stop Stop Stop,” “Pay You Back With Interest,” “On A Carousel,” “Carrie Anne,” “King Midas In Reverse,” and “Jennifer Eccles,” continues all the way to This Path Tonight (2016), his most recent solo album.

The original union of Crosby, Stills & Nash (& Young) lasted but twenty months, yet their songs are embedded in our cultural DNA. “Marrakesh Express,” “Pre-Road Downs” (written for then-girlfriend Joni Mitchell), and “Lady Of the Island,” are all from the first Crosby, Stills & Nash LP (1969). On CSNY’s Déjà Vu (1970), Nash’s “Teach Your Children” and “Our House” beseeched us to hold love tightly, to fend off the madness that was on its way.

Nash’s solo career gave the world more songs that defined an era. “Chicago/We Can Change the World” and “Military Madness” were fueled by the Long Hot Summer, the trial of the Chicago Eight, and the ongoing Vietnam war. Wild Tales (1974), addressed unfair jail terms for minor drug offenses (“Prison Song”), unfair treatment of Vietnam vets (“Oh! Camil”), the unfairness of fame (“You’ll Never Be the Same”), and his muse, Joni (“Another Sleep Song”).

The resilient and productive partnership between Graham Nash and David Crosby launched with the eponymous Graham Nash/David Crosby (1972), bookended by Nash’s “Southbound Train” as the opening track and “Immigration Man” as the closer.

On the CSN reunion studio LP (1977), Nash took top honors with “Just A Song Before I Go,” a Top 10 hit single that was written in the space of one hour. Lightning struck once more on CSN’s Daylight Again (1982), on which Nash penned their second (and final) Top 10 hit, “Wasted On the Way,” lamenting the energy, time and love lost by the group due to years of quarrels.

With a career spanning more than 50 years, Graham Nash will be sharing songs from across the decades when he appears on the Buskirk-Chumley stage. Join us to hear all your favorites.
