Legendary singer-songwriter Graham Nash will perform a series of “An Evening With” concerts in the eastern United States this September and the western United States this November, with a run of dates in the UK with Crosby, Stills & Nash’s 2013 tour in October.
The tour kicks off on September 11 at the Ridgefield Playhouse in Ridgefield, CT, and concludes November 18 at the McCallum Theatre of the Performing Arts in Palm Desert, CA. Highlights from the September run include shows at The Birchmere in Alexandria, VA, the Wilbur Theatre in Boston, MA, and multiple nights at City Winery in New York City.
Graham Nash will be performing as a trio, accompanied by James Raymond (keyboards) and Shane Fontayne (guitar)—who are also part of CSN’s touring band. “The chance to play my songs with two such great musicians is thrilling to me,” says Nash. “I don't do this often and I'm so looking forward to the tour. A splendid time is guaranteed for all . . .”
On this fall tour, Nash will continue his long-time tradition of raising money for charity through the Guacamole Fund’s special benefit seats; in addition, he will be donating $1 per ticket sold to charity.
While continually building his musical legacy, Nash is also an internationally renowned photographer and visual artist whose work has been shown in galleries and museums worldwide, including the Smithsonian. Born in Blackpool, England, Nash was appointed OBE by Queen Elizabeth in 2010. He first rose to fame with The Hollies, and went on to form Crosby, Stills & Nash in 1968. Nash has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame two-times (for CSN & The Hollies), and is in the Songwriters Hall of Fame (as an individual and with CSN). In May 2013, he received an honorary Doctor of Fine Arts from Boston’s Lesley University, where he spoke at the commencement.
Nash’s long awaited autobiography, Wild Tales: A Rock & Roll Life will be published on September 17 by Crown Archetype/Random House.
