Crosby, Stills & Nash perform Aug. 9 at Clearwater’s Ruth Eckerd Hall.
CLEARWATER - Crosby, Stills & Nash are bringing their summer tour to Ruth Eckerd Hall Saturday, Aug. 9, 7:30 p.m. The group will perform songs from their extensive catalogue, as well as new material from each member.
Once again, CSN will be accompanied by its backing band featuring: Shane Fontayne (guitar), Steve DiStanislao (drums), Kevin McCormick (bass), James Raymond (keyboards), and Todd Caldwell (organ).
David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash unite as “three together” for the Summer 2014 dates amid a full slate of side and solo projects.
David Crosby began a sold out solo tour in the U.S. in April in support of CROZ, his first solo release in 20 years, five sold out shows at the Troubadour in Los Angeles, and two sold out shows at Great American Music Hall in San Francisco. The album was released Jan. 28 on Blue Castle Records, the label Crosby and Nash founded in 2011, and debuted at No. 36 on the Billboard 200 chart.
Stephen Stills recently announced a 17-date solo tour, which started May 8 in Santa Cruz, California and ended on June 3 in Tucson, Arizona. He recently toured solo and with The Rides, his blues-rock trio with Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Barry Goldberg; their album Can’t Get Enough was released last summer. Carry On, a 4-CD box chronicling Stills’ career—produced by Nash and Joel Bernstein—also came out in 2013.
Graham Nash recently wrapped a solo tour—followed by an ongoing book tour for his long-awaited autobiography Wild Tales: A Rock & Roll Life, published in September by Crown Publishing Group. He performed two solo shows at the brand new City Winery in Napa, California on April 29 and 30. Nash also exhibited his artwork and photography throughout 2013.
More than four decades since CSN first harmonized in Laurel Canyon, and played its first-ever concert as a trio at the legendary Woodstock festival, its members continue a creative partnership that is one of the most influential and enduring in music.
David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Graham Nash have each been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame two times with Crosby, Stills & Nash, and a second time with The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, and The Hollies, respectively. They are also in the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, honored both for CSN as a group, and as individual solo artists.
