20.35 - 21.50 | FRIDAY | STAGE 1
Legendary artist Graham Nash is a two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee - with Crosby, Stills, and Nash and with the Hollies. He was also inducted twice into the Songwriter's Hall of Fame, as a solo artist and with CSN, and he is a GRAMMY Award winner.
Towering above virtually everything that Graham Nash has accomplished in his long and multi-faceted career, 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 from 1964 to ’68, including Stop Stop Stop, On A Carousel, and Carrie Anne, continues all the way to This Path Tonight (2016), his most recent solo album. Fifteen of his songs are celebrated in the 2018 release, Over the Years…, a 2-disc collection of some of Nash’s best-known works from the past 50 years and more than a dozen unreleased demos and mixes.
The original classic union of Crosby, Stills & Nash (& Young) lasted but twenty months. Yet their songs are lightning rods embedded in our DNA, starting with Nash’s Marrakesh Express, Pre-Road Downs and Lady Of the Island, 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.
