Graham Nash heads to UK for July shows

The “I think we can call him legendary” Graham Nash has announced a series of dates over the summer in the UK, promising “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’ and former CSN keyboardist and vocalist Todd Caldwell, and together, the trio will perform songs from his days in the Hollies, his years with Crosby, Stills & Nash (& Young) and from his solo recordings.

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, Nash is a two-time Songwriter Hall of Fame Inductee, Grammy Award winner, a New York Times best-selling author, and an OBE, although nobody like a bighead. Here are those dates:
