Fun facts about Graham Nash ...
Graham Nash, the legendary musician and songwriter who is best known for his work with The Hollies and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, is touring this summer in support of his latest album, “This Path Tonight,” which is his first collection of songs in 14 years.
The tour will take him throughout the Mid-Atlantic States and New England, with a stop at Gettysburg’s Majestic Theater. He’ll be performing there on Tuesday, July 25 at 7:30 p.m. The theater is located at 25 Carlisle Road in Gettysburg. Tickets range between $56 and $89.
The veteran singer-songwriter will share the tales behind some of his best-known songs.
Fontayne, 63, produced Nash’s 2016 album, “This Path Tonight.” Nash says they work so well together “‘cause I don’t have to tell him what to do. It’s an incredible thing for a musician to say. You’ve got to understand, this guy saw the Hollies when he was 10 years old, at the Finsbury Park Empire [a London theater], and he wanted to become a musician. So, in a way, he goes back a long way with me, though I have only known him for 10 years."
Graham Nash says without intervention, it’s likely he could have ended up down in the mines in northwest England.
“Fortunately, I had parents who encouraged my passion for music, and that’s why I’m talking to you right now,” says the singer, songwriter and guitarist who has been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame not once but twice.
