Graham Nash Back On The Road

Graham Nash is finally back on the road after delaying his solo tour several times due to Covid. The twice-inducted Rock Hall veteran kicks the run off tonight (March 2nd) in Collingswood, New Jersey at the Scottish Rite Auditorium and winds down the current dates over two nights — April 2nd and 3rd — at Kent, Ohio’s Kent Stage.

Nash’s shows feature just him, Shane Fontayne Crosby, Stills, & Nash‘s longtime road guitarist, and keyboardist Todd Caldwell. The setlist features a cross-section of Nash’s career — tackling hits by the Hollies, along with new solo work, and classics by Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young.

Graham Nash told us that not worrying about his partners’ material on a nightly basis has proven to be a liberating thing for him: “It’s really interesting having to deal with my music, not having to wonder whether (David) Crosby has equal songs, or Stephen (Stills) has equal songs, or Neil (Young) has equal songs. You know me; I’ve always been the democratic one in the band. But having to deal with just my music is kind of refreshing. It’s very satisfying, actually.”

Nash admitted that his acoustic shows have brought him closer to his audience than ever before: “They more and more seem to think I’m one of them, and I like that a lot. ‘Cause I don’t want it to be, y’know, a bunch of people looking at some guy onstage as a star, y’know? Whatever we have done in our lives, every single decision we have ever made, up to this point will bring us to the show. So, why not have the best time? Why not have me do my job, which is as a musician, I go there, I sing songs, I hope to touch their hearts, I hope to touch their minds, I get paid money, and they leave smiling. What’s wrong with this picture?”
