Crosby, Stills & NashSaturday, July 14th, 2012« view all past events
The music of David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash is a cornerstone of rock n roll. As Crosby, Stills & Nash (CSN), this trio of legendary singer-songwriters has been actively collaborating since 1969, when they first harmonized in either Joni Mitchell’s living room or Mama Cass Elliot’s dining room, depending on which member you ask (Crosby and Nash ascribe to the former, Stills is adamant about the latter). Wherever its point of origin, the connection they forged from day one-as artists and as friends-was profound and unbreakable. Essential elements of our pop culture experience, their songs are just as durable, conveying emotional truths and social consciousness in equal measure.
Forty years into their creative partnership, CSN is expanding its recorded repertoire with two album projects, one spotlighting its enduring creative spark, the other its legendary roots. David, Stephen and Graham are currently recording a new album for Columbia Records with ten-time GRAMMY®-winning producer Rick Rubin at the helm. This June, Rhino Records will release Crosby, Stills & Nash Demos, a single-disc collection of rare and previously unheard demos of destined-to-be-classic signature songs reaching back to the group’s earliest days.
CSN will also take to the road once again, as they have done on a recurrent basis ever since their very first gig together-before more than 500,000 people-at Woodstock four decades ago. The tour’s launch coincides with CSN’s June 2009 induction into the New York City-based Songwriter’s Hall of Fame. The honor-which follows their 1997 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-recognizes David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash as individual solo artists and as three together with CSN. It also acknowledges the groundbreaking music each was instrumental in creating with landmark groups prior to forming CSN: The Byrds (Crosby), Buffalo Springfield (Stills) and The Hollies (Nash).
